Parashah - Cerebus Apocrypha
Okay, if anyone's interested, here's a list of how to read the Cerebus Apocrypha (side stories) while reading the main story. The number at the left tells you which lar issue each particular story should be read AFTER. (e.g after issue 4, read "Demonhorn").
Following the story's title is the month it was originally PUBLISHED. The following column tells where to find the story (easiest place first - dig out those World Tour Books!). Of course, this is not completely accurate, as its based on the dates of the regular issues, which, particularly in the 1980's, were not always "on schedule".
Also, I've placed "Cerebus Dreams" and "Elfguest" both after issue 50, as its probably easier to read those two separate stories in between novels rather than after one or two issues of Church and State.
And remember - this is as the stories originally appeared, NOT where they fit into Cerebus' life. For example, "What Happened Between Issues 20 and 21" does NOT belong in between issues 20 and 21!
