This is one of the longest dry spells for news related to Cerebus art that I can recall. I just skipped over to the Yahoo group and there were only 36 posts in each of January and February, which is the lowest activity since it began, in earnest, in 2000. When there is nothing new to talk about - except the fact that there is nothing new to talk about - that's a bad sign (unless you happen to be a cable news service, in which case it is what you do for a living).
In another universe... the one where the Cerebus creators continued to work together and think about the Aardvarkian Age, I think a nice compromise to the no-more-Cerebus stories would have been some mini-series that explored the goings on in the lives of some of the other characters, and used it - as was handled so well - as a commentary on the state of affairs of the day. Lord Julius as a vehicle for reflecting on today's politics... Michelle and Teresa on a version of social networking... and so on.
I met Ger for a long overdue lunch, and that was great fun.
