About

Dave Sim is the author, cartoonist, and publisher of CEREBUS THE AARDVARK, a groundbreaking independent comic which ran from December 1977 to March 2004. In 2018 he was entered into The Guinness Book of World Records for “most consecutive issues of a comic book written and drawn”.The series, which largely followed the life of the titular character, was noted for its exquisitely-rendered art and stylistic flexibility, its novelistic character development and story arcs, and bold violations of audience expectations. During the run of the series, Sim was awarded an Eisner award for Best Graphic Album (Flight, 1994), a Harvey award for “Best Cartoonist” (1992), an Ignatz award for “Outstanding Artist” (1998), a Joe Shuster award for “Outstanding Comic Book Achievement” (2005), and two Kirby awards for “Best Black & White Series” (in both 1985 and 1987). Throughout his career Sim has advocated for self-publishing as a means of securing both creative and financial freedom for comic creators. His influence, mentoring and advocacy led to a wave of self-publishing throughout the 1980s and the1990s.

Since CEREBUS ended he has been attempting to digitally restore, remaster and keep the entire CEREBUS maxi-series in print (a not inconsiderable task), running Kickstarter campaigns for THE CEREBUS ARCHIVE (hi-rez reproductions of original CEREBUS pages with commentaries), and working on the monthly comic-book gag strip, CEREBUS IN HELL?

In 2015 he was struck with a mysterious wrist ailment which has severely curtailed his illustration abilities and left him unable to draw, except in short painful bursts.
