Description:
Dave Sim Cerebus the Aardvark #50 page 1 Original Art (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1982). The Exodus Inward is over. Cerebus is alone in the Executive Manor surrounded by Tarimite troops, in this first page to the tale, "Crisis Number Six: Denouement." Dave Sim related to us, "The idea here was 'stripped down Winsor McKay.' The Befuddle Hall pages from 1908 with intricate woodwork and wainscoting. I had only seen one page in Jerry Robinson's The Comics. Bit that's what I wanted the Regency to look like: Befuddle Hall, but right-side up". The art has an image area of 10" x 15"; other than a small stain on the left and two pieces of yellowed tape, all outside the image area, the art is in Excellent condition. Signed by Dave Sim at the top edge of the art. From the Dave Sim High Society Collection.

Sim, Dave:. Dave Sim is best known as the creator of Cerebus the Aardvark
