I have some big news, everybody. Sometime ago, I sent a letter to Dave Sim up in Kitchener, Ontario. I wanted to ask for permission to use his famous creation, Cerebus the Aardvark, in Sunnyville Stories episode 10.
This morning, I went to mail some letters and swung by my post office box at the Murrow Boulevard post office here in Greensboro. When I opened up my box, I found a mailer inside and the address was from Kitchener! Yes, Dave Sim had actually written back to me!
Yes, I was very excited when I got this so I rushed back to the office to open it up.
Inside was an autographed copy of Locke & Key #2 from IDW Publishing (Dave Sim did the cover) and a letter from Mr. Sim. He’s given me the green light to have Cerebus as a background character in Sunnyville #10.
Here’s the letter I got, complete with Aardvark-Vanaheim letterhead and Mr. Sim’s signature.
As a reminder, Cerebus will just be a background character. We’ll probably see him wandering the streets of Sunnyville or maybe browsing the wares at the general store.
Anyway, stay tuned for more news on Sunnyville #10 as it develops.
