Note From The President, Cerebus 202, January 1996



I had to laugh. I just spoke to Terry Moore a little while ago on the phone and he told me that he had just sent an issue to the printer for which he had rewritten the inside front cover piece three times. Each time out he was trying to write something political — something about self-publishing and how great it is and...

He ended up just saying that all he wants to do is write and draw his book.

Steve Bissette arrived the Wednesday before the Kitchener Spirits stop singing the same song. He was glad he participated in the Spirits stops that he did, but in 1996 he planned to just stay home and write and draw Tyrant.

Colleen arrived on Friday. The day before there had been a Canada Customs scare that her books might have been held up at the border and wouldn’t arrive in time for the show on Sunday. Over dinner Friday night she admitted that a part of her was hoping that the books would be held at the border so she would have an excuse to just stay home and work on A Distant Soil since she had just built up a real head of steam in the productivity department. When you read my limited contribution to the back of this issue you’re going to see a lot of the same sensibility coming to the fore.
