Cerebus Kickstarter Campaign



The Cerebus Kickstarter project has been launched! The primary objective of this Kickstarter project is to introduce Cerebus to a new generation of comic book fans by turning the World's Longest Graphic Novel into the World's Longest Audio Book with (fingers crossed) the creation of digital versions of every page of each issue of Cerebus. Every digital issue will include front covers, editorials, essays, letters and back covers and be made available as a $0.99 digital download (If this project succeeds!) In addition to digital versions of the individual comic books, Dave Sim is also providing additional audio and video content, including:
  • Sim performing all of the hundreds of Cerebus characters' dialogue as well as text and captions from the storyline for every issue.
  • Sim will also provide audio-visual commentary for every issue, looking back and providing his reflections and a look at all of the relevant documents in the chronological Cerebus Archive.
  • In addition, Dave Sim will also be shooting and narrating footage of his rough sketches and drawings (and translating cryptic entries) from his notebooks, as well as providing a never-before-seen "tour" close-up of the original art still in the Cerebus Archive (190 pages of the 500 page High Society as an example) issue-by-issue.


Full details of Dave Sim's project to raise $6,000 by 30 June 2012 can be found at Kickstarter.

  1. Just tried to pledge, but amazon.com is only accepting US money transfers (I'm form the UK)! Is there any way around this? Very excited about this project....

    1. Sadly, Kickstarter is U.S. only but you can also leave a donation via paypal on the Cerebustv.com website, just click on the (small) donate button at the top of the page. Leave a comment as to which reward package you would like. Thanks!

  2. I donated $20 to CerebusTV on the 23rd, but since CerebusTV is no more (sniff), any way I can add that 20 to my $30 Kickstarter donation to make it 50?
