Quote:I believe it was a monthly series that has since been collected into a series of collections, like Marvel's Essentials or DC's Showcase Presents.
Yes. I think Dave Sim may well have invented the black and white "phone book" format. Though of course Cerebus was black and white to begin with, unlike the stories collected in the Essentials or Showcase Presents volumes.
Indeed. Moreover, Cerebus is actually written as 25-issue arcs, so buying an individual issue would tend to be confusing.
