Another short annoying chapter.
I'm glad I read Cerebus the way I did, issue by issue, because if I'd read it this way with all these short, largely pointless chapters I think I would have given up in disgust.
This one, while beautifully drawn in that Regency style that Dave adopted for much of High Society and ALL of Church & State I thus far, goes nowhere and does nothing.
It's 2 pages of Cerebus signing documents that a flunky presents him with. The hopelessness of the situation Cerebus finds himself in is that he signs whatever is put in front of him without even knowing what they are. He tells the flunky that if he wants to know what he's signing he'll ask.
Hope the pace and the length picks up in the next chapter.
