    Dave Sim and Gerhard Cerebus #81 Story Page 3 Secret Sacred Wars Roach Original Art (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1989). One of the most beloved supporting characters in the epic 300-issue run of this ground-breaking title, he would go by many names (and many parodies)... Captain Cockroach (a Captain America parody), Moon Roach (Moon Knight), Wolveroach (Wolverine), Punisheroach (The Punisher), and Swoon (Dream/Sandman of the Endless). Used as a send-up of specific characters and comics in general, he was great fodder for laughs. Here, he is the Secret Sacred Wars Roach. The page is signed by both Dave Sim and Gerhard in the top margin from the famed '92 Tour. It is created in ink and Zipatone over graphite on illustration board with an image area of approximately 10" x 15", and is in Excellent condition. So buy it before someone drops a moon-shaped rock on you. From the Allan Holtz Collection.
