Create New Angst? What Angst? Advertisement: Red Sophia gives up fighting by the time she marries Cerebus. Cerebus can be seen to go through this as well, but where it happens is debatable. They are. Advertisement: Designated Hero : Cerebus can be seen as this, since nearly everything he does is for his own selfish gain.

Due to his rising misogyny, he hated pretty much all his female characters and generally wrote them out to replace them with Straw Feminist shrews. This, however, is nothing compared to Cerebus himself.

A good part of Minds is devoted to Dave forcibly making Cerebus realize what an asshole he is and how totally unfit he is for human company. Growing the Beard : Happens a few times. Firstly, after Dave tripped out on LSD and created the first "Mind Game" issue where the comic began to have an actual plot. Also when Gerhard came in to do the backgrounds and inking, allowing Dave to concentrate more on what he liked doing and increasing the quality of the artwork dramatically.

Advertisement: Iron Woobie : The real Cirin has been through a lot. She was betrayed by her best friend; her peaceful movement morphed into a violent, fascist mockery of what it used to be; her mouth was sewn shut which scarred her lips ; she was placed under permanent house arrest; yet she bears it all with a smile.

He pretty much stays this way for the remainder of the comic. She has an abortion because she thought a baby would make her ugly, and treats both her husband and Cerebus very badly but in the end your heart still breaks for her.

Moral Event Horizon : Pope Cerebus killed an infant and an old person to shock the crowds. Serna betraying her friend Cirin and stealing her identity.. Nightmare Fuel : The entire sequence of Cerebus having an eye injury from a syringe towards the end of Minds is lampshaded Eye Scream.

Padding : In one issue, 4 pages are devoted to Cerebus taking a piss. Dave Sim seems to find this sort of thing incredibly amusing.

Protection from Editors : Cerebus was self-published. Squick : Lots of very gory deaths throughout the series. Even before things got gory, there was that guy in issue 25 who got crushed to death between two giant monsters having sex. A brief summary of grievances is as follows: A few readers disliked the direction the series took after the first 25 issues Volume 1 , back when Cerebus was still a relatively unambitious parody of Conan the Barbarian.

Not counting the controversial politics the series became infamous for much later on, some were turned off by the more complex narratives of High Society on onward, which generally had very little action and typical fantasy genre storytelling.

Not all readers were pleased with the narrative after High Society Volume 2. While they appreciated the heavier political themes and more mature writing of those issues, some disliked the increasingly "cosmic" nature that the series was taking, especially the ending of Church and State. Not to mention just how unlikable as a character Cerebus had become throughout those volumes, his vile actions including throwing a baby onto the street, kicking a crippled old man off a building, and perhaps worst of all raping Astoria in the dungeon.

At first, readers turned away from the series by the previous arcs that focused on unrelated side plots were excited at the prospect of an action-packed story returning Cerebus to his main character role. Finally, the consensus of perhaps most readers is that everything up until Minds is at least tolerable, and essentially enjoyable. Ugly Cute : Cerebus as a child. As an adult he still looks pretty cuddly. Uncanny Valley : Sheshep Ankh. He looks perfectly human, until you notice that his feet only have three toes.

His conversations with Oscar all but state that not only did he only marry for her to get the son he has always wanted, but any daughters she might have would be unloved and neglected. What an Idiot! The first two phonebooks might be appropriate for teens, but gory violence, nudity, graphic sexual material, and other frankly "adult" themes run throughout the rest of the story arcs, not to mention the more controversial material. The Woobie : Cerebus as a child.

Alternative Title s : Cerebus.


Cerebus the Aardvark

A menudo es grosero y tosco, tiene mal genio y le encanta emborracharse. Sin embargo, es valiente, astuto y puede mostrar un afecto genuino por aquellos a quienes considera iguales o por los que tiene sentimientos. Durante la mayor parte de la serie, Cerebus posee una habilidad innata de "magnificacion". Esta habilidad, de la que muestra poca si es que tiene conciencia, es una tendencia a que los eventos que ocurren a su alrededor se vuelvan inusualmente enfocados y ordenados, con acciones y consecuencias intensificadas y, a veces, con efectos paranormales , y luego se desvanecen de ese estado en su ausencia.
