Diamond Digital and Aardvark-Vanaheim Team for Digital Release of Cerebus: High Society

Cerebus the Aardvark, the creation of Canadian cartoonist Dave Sim and the star of his 6,000-page epic Cerebus, conquers the new frontier of digital comics as publisher Aardvark-Vanaheim joins the Diamond Digital program for the digital release of the 25-part Cerebus: High Society.

Through Diamond Digital, readers can purchase the Cerebus: High Society digital comics from their local comic shop and their online stores and download the content to their mobile devices via the “Digital Comics Reader” App for iOS and Android. A free download, the Digital Comics Reader app can be downloaded at Diamond Digital or viawww.digitalcomicsreader.com and offers readers free cloud storage for all their Diamond Digital purchases.

The first issue of Cerebus: High Society, which reprints May 1981’s Cerebus #26, is available for free through Diamond Digital, and subsequent issues will be priced at 99 cents each.

Originally published in Cerebus in the early 1980s and acclaimed as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time,Cerebus: High Society brings the groundbreaking, yet timely and relevant, satire of Cerebus’ campaign for the Prime Ministership of Iest to the digital audience. Each issue features original documents from the time period from Dave Sim’sCerebus Archive, pages from his original notebooks, and his own annotations.

“Dave Sim’s Cerebus is one of comics’ singular achievements and has been a mainstay of comic shops since the Direct Market’s earliest days,” said Diamond Vice President of Purchasing Bill Schanes. “This partnership between Diamond Digital and Aardvark-Vanaheim will bring this important work to the burgeoning digital market. Here at Diamond, we look forward to conquering new digital readers together with Cerebus: High Society.”

Said Cerebus‘ Dave Sim: “It’s hard to find anything to say about digital High Society without tattooing Spoiler Warning across my mouth – and being deathly afraid of jinxing both Barack Obama and Mitt Romney all the way from up here in the Great White North. Everyone just keep chanting as you download each issue in your favourite comic store: ‘Hanging Chads! Never Again! Hanging Chads! Never Again!’ And if thatworks, remember: you have Dave Sim and Diamond Digital to thank. And if it doesn’t, Oh, Jeez. Don’t look at me. I’m just a hoser like you, so ‘Take Off, Eh?’”

Issues 1 through 5 of Cerebus: High Society are currently available to customers through comics retailers in the Diamond Digital program, and future issues of the 25 issue series will be released weekly through March 2013.
