We’ve got 13 COVERS to show off!
This is one of the most fascinating comics art books I’ve seen in a long time. Rather than being an Artist’s Edition, this volume from IDW is a collection of original cover art and notes by Dave Sim and Gerhard. It’s brilliant stuff, whether you’re a hardcore Cerebus devotee or not.
Here’s the official blurb:
THE CEREBUS COVER ART TREASURY
Dave Sim & Gerhard (a & c)
Dave Sim is one of the most important cartoonists in comics history. His groundbreaking Cerebus ran for 300 issues, each written and drawn by Sim until he was joined by Gerhard for Issue #65 and on—a monumental achievement! Now, these beautiful covers are reproduced in an archival hardcover, over 100 scanned from Sim’s personal collection of original art, complete with annotations by Sim and Gerhard! Also collected are roughs, color guides, sketches, notable CGC editions, and other historical images that chronicle the evolution of the series by one of the most important and influential cartoonists in comics history. Features introductions by Kevin Eastman and Dave Sim.

The book is out 10/19. I’ve picked 13 COVERS — because that’s what we do here — to show off this masterpiece of creativity and design. Believe me when I tell you I’m just scratching the surface. (Oh and pay careful attention to the comments from Sim and Gerhard.)
