    Dave Sim - The Animated Cerebus Portfolio (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1983). In 1982, Cerebus creator Dave Sim was approached with a tentative offer by an animation studio with some proposals for an animated "Cerebus" film. Sim decided to produce a portfolio of short vignettes that would appear in the film. There are three vignettes in The Animated Cerebus: (1) "A Well-Equipped Bar" (16 Plates), (2) "Add One Mummified Bat" (12 Plates), and (3) "His First Sword" (17 Plates). This package also includes a cover sheet with information on the portfolio (signed by Dave Sim), a black & white photograph of a 26-year-old Sim working on the cover of Cerebus #16, "A Night at the Masque." The plates measure 9" x 12", and are printed in color on white card stock, and are in Excellent condition. The portfolio envelope features a series of four animated Cerebus figures falling down drunk. The packet has some very light edge wear, otherwise is in Excellent condition.
