The Collected Glamourpuss - Volume One


Coming soon, the collected glamourpuss - Volume One (Issues 1-25). The first collection of Dave Sim's glamourpuss will be a DVD collecting PDFs of every page of issues 1-25 of glamourpuss including all variant covers as well as hi-resolution digital scans of the original artwork of every page before lettering.

  1. Awesome! I love the idea of a DVD set of PDFs - plus the 'bonus' of the original art scans.

  2. Volume one? Does this mean there will be a volume two?

    1. Not yet, might be one in the future.

    2. I think this is a much better idea... The pricing of a print version would just be dumb- you'd want that high quality paper and great color separation, so there wouldn't be any chance of the book costing what a Cerebus phonebook costs. AND, with digital you can zoom in and see the exquisite detail of this work.

    3. Yeah, I think it's the way to go. Cerebus Archive will probably be next in a similar format.

    4. As commonly I use Cerebus Archive as a reference guide for finding info having CA in PDF will be great - as you'll be able to search the text to find what you're looking for.

  4. That image is one of my favourite pages from glamourpuss.

    1. Glad you like it! That will be the cover of the DVD, plus you'll get a hi-res 600 dpi 11x17 scan of the original as well.

  5. Will this be available as a plain download, as well? Even if it's just the PDFs, no bonus material?

    1. Short answer: Yes. Long answer: We're in the middle of deciding how best to offer this, we're talking to comixology and also looking at this being a reward for another kickstarter project. Keep checking back for details. Thanks!

  6. Is Glamourpuss an ongoing series then? I thought I heard somewhere that it would only be 25 issues. Has Dave decided how long Glamourpuss will run?

    1. It's over for now: 26 issues. He might start it up again one day...

    2. So is he planning a new comic then?

    3. Right now, it's all about the digital version of Cerebus. We're in the middle of High Society right now, and we'll be working on that for a while. No plans for a new comic anytime soon.

  7. Also, what about a public appearance at a comic shop on a weekend to promote the release of this collection? I realize that Dave had his "last signing" out in Halifax, but c'mon.

    1. Sorry, very doubtful that's going to happen.

  8. Very keen to get my hands on this - finding and buying Glamourpuss was tricksome in the UK and have missed some issues... :( That said, do also hope it comes out as a printed edition one day. I know it would be more expensive than the phone books but looking at the artwork on a screen for a long period of time would be pretty eyeball busting.

    Also, out of interest, why would the DVD stop at issue 25 and not 26? Seems a strange omission?
