Dave Sim has finally announced the first collection of his post-Cerebus project, glamourpuss… But for those expecting a thick phonebook-style edition, think again:
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.
While I love the idea of the collection including unlettered art pages, I can’t help but feel that the format is stubbornly old-fashioned. In today’s era of digital releases available for download, putting out PDFs via DVD is either horrifically out of step, or hilariously off-kilter a choice to make.
