    Dave Sim - Original Art for Cerebus #1, page 13 (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1977). This is the issue where we first meet Cerebus... the small, gray, and chronically ill-tempered aardvark barbarian. When the Cerebus series began in 1977, Sim initially conceived of it as a parody of popular series such as Conan, Red Sonja, and Elric but quickly transformed the scope of the series into much, much more. One of the pioneers of the independent publishing movement, Sim set the (then) audacious goal of producing a 300 issue maxi-series. Fortunately for all of us, that goal has nearly been achieved, and Cerebus has taken it's rightful place as one of the most important and entertaining series of the last few decades. Cerebus art is rarely seen on the collector's market, as those who are fortunate enough to own a page rarely part with it. Overall page size is 10.5" x 15.5" with an image area of 10" x 15". This page is in great shape, and aside from some slight yellowing around the extreme corners is in excellent condition. Signed by Dave Sim. A real treasure!
