I presume the last story is a parody of his own life - but with not so much parody.

I'm assuming it's some kind of bio of Alex Raymond, the creator of the Phantom.

In that case, it sounds like he's identifying himself with Alex Raymond quite heavily in this story.

What with the "everyone (including his domineering wife who is doubtless a Feminist) says he is mentally ill but he is actually a genius!" part.*

Perhaps Dave Sim's real life is a parody of Alex Raymond's!

*Not that you can't be both, obviously.

I thought he was identifying with (Stan?) Drake.

You're probably right - he was identifying with the dude who's supposed to be 'insane,' anyway.

Funnily enough, I didn't bother to give the thing a second read through. Uh... nice art though?

Alex Raymond did not create The Phantom. That was Lee Falk. He did create Flash Gordon and a number of other series, though.

It is a car with a bow and fishnets, so I must agree.

What? What the fuck? On the one hand, this is the most hilarious shit since the multiple Batman: Odyssey posts with the photoshopped crystals, on the other, I'm wondering exactly why DC haven't sued the guy and/or how this is even being published.

It's clearly parody, and that's legal under the law. Since the series appears to be an anthology, and the Zatana ripoff is only a part of that, they aren't going to make a big stink over it.

Aside from the fact that they probably would lose (as [profile] his_spiffnesss mentioned), the likely dual PR hit of suing a self-published author, and one who's known to be mentally ill probably factored in as well. (Especially since he earned a lot of good will with very good work before his mental state broke down.)

As someone who takes care of a pet rabbit, I find those moments kinda hilarious. :D

I don't really understand what's going on, but that bunny is pretty cute.

Um... What?

All I'm getting out of this is "cute bunny is cute" and "I am somewhat concerned for the comic's creator".

It's kind of funny, in a profoundly sad sort of way, that Sim is parodying Frank Miller here, because he's pretty much in Miller's class now with regards to full-time self-parody.
