For the first time in months. Dave Sim has managed not to rag on women, on gays, on gays and women in his solicitations for his Cerebus In Hell one-shots. This time it’s all about alcoholism, college sports and pop-tarts. And continuing to repurpose the work of Dante’s Inferno illustrator Gustave Dore with this cover by Benjamin Hobbs. Which, as well as parodying the classic Iron Man storyline Demon In A Bottle, also recognises that fellow Canuck Todd McFarlane will be publishing his 300th issue of Spawn in August.
