    Description

    Cerebus The Aardvark #1 Dave Sim File Copy - Signature Series (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1977) CGC NM 9.4 White pages. The first appearance of Cerebus the Aardvark was also the very first Aardvark-Vanaheim comic, and Dave Sim provided the story, and cover and interior art for the book. This is undoubtedly the most desirable copy of #1 out there, being not only signed by Sim, but also coming from his personal collection and having the highest grade on the current CGC census. With an original print run of only 2,000 copies, first issues are hard to come by in any condition - this is just the fourth copy Heritage has ever offered. And a 9.4 is almost unheard of, due to the slightly over-sized format. This copy will surely be the centerpiece of some lucky bidder's "earth pig" collection, and will certainly be the envy of all other Cerebus collectors. We expect a lot of action on this beauty! CGC notes, "Signed by Dave Sim on 3/13/04." Overstreet 2009 NM- 9.2 value = $1,000. CGC census 1/10 for universal grades: 2 in 9.0, none higher; for signature series: 3 in 9.4, none higher.
