Cerebus, Iron Manticore and an Unprintable Homophobic Slur…

It does appear as if the boy just can’t help it. Maybe he was born that way? Dave Sim continues to tarnish his reputation with notes so tone deaf that they probably classify as an officially sanctioned disability. In August, the latest of his Cerebus In Hell oneshots which have so far done for feminism, LGBTQ, more LGBTQ, yet more LGBTQ and now… a take on Tales Of Suspense and the first appearance of Iron Man, recreated as Iron Manticore. Are we out of the end of the tunnel? Not quite…

The Iron Manticore is fast-tracked for sainthood by the Vatican! Iron Manticore uses an unprintable homophobic slur! To be continued!

Who knew that, in comparison, Spawn #9 would be a high point? Say, do you reckon Cerebus will show his face in Spawn #300? If only to shame Al Simmons for being some sissy-guy?

Anyway, here’s the August solicit… fom Aardvark Vanaheim.
