    Dave Sim Cerebus #33 Cover Moon Roach Original Art (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1981). Having abandoned his previous identities of "The Cockroach" and "Captain Cockroach", Artemis was now using the guise of "Moon Roach". Dave Sim used the character to satirize the comic industry and specifically Batman, Captain America, Moon Knight, Wolverine, the Marvel Super Heroes Secret Wars series, Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns, Jim Valentino's Normalman, the Punisher, Neil Gaiman's Sandman, and even Sgt. Preston of the Royal Mounted Police. The Roach often upstaged Cerebus when he appeared in a story. Astoria appears on this cover in one of her earliest appearances in this story arc collected as "High Society". Cerebus the Aardvark also appears on the cover (it's his book, after all). A gorgeous cover painted in gouache on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 14". The board is lightly toned and has been slightly sunstruck on the edges from a previous framing. Overall, in Excellent condition.
