Lemme just say that Cerebus is one of my all-time favorite comic book series. What started out as a kind of lark, a fun way to make fun of fantasy staples, took on a life of its own and became something else entirely over the course of its 27 year run. I highly recommend Cerebus to pretty much anyone with a pulse. But if you want to get into Cerebus, maybe don’t start with volume one. Jump to at least Volume two. Hell, I think I started with volume nine, went down to two, then five, then back to one and two again, then three and four and went pretty much linearly from there. Volume one is good. It’s really good. But it’s kind of inaccessible if you don’t know what you’re in for. Jumping in mid-run and playing catch-up is the way to go with Cerebus.
