    San Diego, CA (May 19, 2014) - Dave Sim's masterwork Cerebus ran for an impressive 300 issues between 1977 and 2004. Starting with issue #26, Cerebus got a taste of High Society, a storyline that concluded with issue #50, and which critics and readers alike recognize as the point at which Cerebus became a vehicle for political commentary. High Society is also widely considered a great starting point for first time Cerebus readers.
    This August, IDW Publishing will release a multi-disc DVD set that presents the entire DIGITAL AUDIO/VISUAL EXPERIENCE of High Society in a unique multi-media format. The Cerebus: High Society Digital Audio/Visual Experience has Dave Sim reading every issue in character—complete with accompanying music and sound effects—while motion effects applied to the story art present the material like you've never seen it before. Each issue also includes a section of full Editorial Comments from Sim, giving fans a virtual guided tour of this masterpiece.

    "With the restoration of the High Society graphic novel now dragging on into its 3rd year—and no end in sight—it's Justin Eisinger and IDW to the rescue with Cerebus: High Society Digital Audio/Visual Experience DVD set! Thanks guys!" said Dave Sim.

    "Cerebus means so many things to so many readers, it really is a monumental work of our times," said Justin Eisinger, IDW's Senior Editor Books. "Having the opportunity to work with Dave and his team to bring this High Society set to life—and in this form—is a special experience that we'll never forget. The creator PERFORMING the story?! It's a hell of a thing."

    Originally brought to life through the magic of Kickstarter, the HIGH SOCIETY DIGITAL AUDIO/VISUAL EXPERIENCE is a must-experience for all fans of Cerebus.

    This sounds like a really bad idea. Sim doing the female voices in the sex scenes is going to be hilarious. Also, Sim is the best letterer in comics and putting audio to his work renders that pretty moot. (Although, High Society is early in the book's run and he was still perfecting his craft at that point.)

      I hadn't thought about that, but yeah, that does kinda sound like a recipe for disaster. I'm still intrigued with how this'll turn out though. I'm intrigued by Sim's editorial comments for each section though. He's an interesting guy who doesn't mix words.

        Yeah, the commentary should be interesting just as long as he doesn't talk too much about Abrahamic religions or get too misogynistic.
