Following Cerebus #2

This book is on it's way off my buy list. Too much material I've already read in here and the rest is not well written. Who really wants to read a 30 year old inteview with Barry Smith done by Dave Sim? The only interesting information to be gleaned from the interview is that Barry Smith was a pompous, self-important ass well before he added the "Windsor" to his name. I like Smith's work from that period, but fer Christ's sake, it was Conan the Barbarian. Come on. And the new material, okay, let's not mince words. It's badly written. Pretentious, present tense prose on the genius of the storytelling in Cerebus and it's not particularly insightful. I'll pass, thanks.
