    Dave Sim Cerebus #15 Cover and Preliminary with Color Original Art (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1980). Any original art from this series from below issue #25 is as rare as a talking Earth-Pig, but a cover as striking as this one is truly wonderful find! You can bet a pretty Palnuian penny it will gather attention! Cerebus started out as a parody of Conan the Barbarian. So it was really only a matter of time before he faced off against a giant snake! Lord Julius in the background is just a bonus for this great piece created in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 14". It is personalized and signed just below the image area. The logo is a hand-lettered paste-up. The header banner is a stat paste-up. It comes with Sim's own prelim for the cover, as rendered in ink over graphite with watercolor on paper with an image area of 9.75" x 14". It is personalized and signed in the lower margin as well. The combination prelim and color guide have been folded across the center, and there is a smudge in the ink in the header banner. The prelim is in Very Good condition, and the final cover art is in Excellent condition.
