I’ll be continuing my Cerebus posts sometime soon (tonight or tomorrow) but before I do, I thought everyone should go and read/re-read Andrew Rilstone’s look at the last issue ,which says a lot of things I want to say myself. Especially this bit:
And by the way, Dave. Damn right I am a liberal. I read your comic precisely because I am a liberal. Where ‘liberal’ is defined as ‘one who believes in freedom, and in particular, the freedom of expression.’ One who believes in pluralism, different viewpoints, and listening to opinions other than one’s own. One who has contempt for what you say, but will not only defend to the death your right to say it, but will actually read it, and recommend that other people do the same.
Hail, Dave Sim. Greatest living comic book creator, and total asshole.
