Description

    Dave Sim and Gerhard - Cerebus Specialty Illustration Original Art (1984). Maverick self-publisher, Dave Sim, and Gerhard recreate the cover to Cerebus the Newsletter #12, which was originally drawn as a wrap-around cover, in this magnificent illustration from the "Church and State" era of Cerebus. Gerhard began collaborating with Sim on issue #65, about halfway through "Church and State," a remarkable 60-issue story of incredible range and great visual beauty. Sim penciled and inked the Cerebus figure, and Harvey Award nominee, Gerhard, inked the background, which he also hand-painted in watercolor. The art has an image area of 12" x 9", and the condition is Excellent. Signed by Dave Sim and Gerhard at the bottom right.
