    Dave Sim - Original Art for Cerebus the Aardvark #1, unknown page (Aardvark-Vanaheim, 1977). In 1977, an unknown Canadian named Dave Sim imperceptibly started a revolution in the comic industry, with the publication of Cerebus #1. With its humble beginnings as an homage to Barry Windsor-Smith's work in the barbarian genre, over time Cerebus has grown in readership and influence.This page from the debut issue shows a rare quiet moment, and features great images of the Earth Pig hisself. Needless to say, the vast majority of early Cerebus pages are tightly held in private collections (despite the fact that Sim used to sell them at conventions for $10 apiece!), and opportunities such as this should not be treated lightly. This image area is 10" x 15" surrounded by a black matte. There is some slight aging apparent, but the work is in exceptional condition. Signed by Dave Sim in the fourth panel.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
