Dave Sim is a complicated guy. I'm going to be trying to put together a biography of him for this space, and maybe some more photos. I really wish I had been able to use more of the stuff from my interview with him in the piece that was published, but since it was a newspaper article it had to be very general. Way back in the beginning of Mothers and Daughters he was telling me that the totalitarian spirit was basically maternal - an instinct to make everyone and everything "safe" - and that the reason women seem split down the middle on abortion is that mothers are pro-life and daughters are pro-choice.
None of that made it into the published review, of course, which is more a "get-acquainted with Cerebus" kind of piece. But one of these days, I swear I'll get around to putting a transcript up. In the meantime, here are some Dave Sim links (as opposed to Cerebus links, which are on the Cerebus page):
