Read an interview with the crazy, crazy, crazy Dave Sim here.
As I got closer to the end of Cerebus, I started examining it as if it were a math problem. I got X and Y figured out and made some progress structurally, and then I hit the brick wall of feminism. I live in a society that believes feminism is workable. They literally won't read anything unless it's founded on an outright lie.
Did I mention he was crazy? (Yeah, I like Cerebus, too.)
