Canadian cartoonist Gerhard, long-time collaborator with Dave Sim on Cerebus, was due to appear at Wizard World Nashville this weekend. But he isn’t there. He wrote last week:
“I’ve been booked for this show for over a year.
We’ve been contacting them about our travel arrangements for weeks.
Yesterday, a week before the show, someone calls to let us know that due to ‘budget cuts’ my appearance at the Nashville show has been cancelled.
My apologies to anyone who was planning on seeing me at the show… see you at Dragon Con Atlanta next year?”
Looks like they lost one attendee at least over it. Gerhard will next appear at Hal-Con from September 22nd to 24th in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
