Gerhard's Life After Cerebus...

GERHARD:
(by email, 23 March 2014)
Back when I was trying to think of things to do just after the book was completed, I tried taking some scenes from Cerebus, removed word balloons and captions and coloured them on the computer. I thought of doing a bunch of these and making them available as a series of prints. Dave didn’t care for the idea and it was scrapped...

Dear Dave,
I'd buy these.

Dave, Gerhard,
I would too.
And it would be even better if they were signed by the both of you!

This is a good idea. That second one with Cerebus and Jaka on the bed is gorgeous.

Are youse guys nuts? Look at the moire, can't fix that somehow?

Tony Dunlop said...

I don't recall that particular image (I'm near the beginning of Melmoth in my reread), but are you sure that's Jaka and not New Joanne?

Sandeep Atwal said...

David, try not to look a gift horse in the mouth too directly... Pretty sure the moiré pattern is just a scanning artifact. I think that's Jaka from Going Home, after the blizzard. I could be wrong.

How about Gerhard colorizing the first 25 issues and putting it out as a hardcover on good paper?

Tony Dunlop said...

I think you're right about Jaka. I realized that shortly after I posted. I think they're in Ham's house.

That shot of Jaka & Cerebus is from the tail end of Going Home, while they're holed up in a hunting lodge, waiting for the moment the weather breaks so they can move on before the Mothers can get up to the tent.

So much for any fanboy cred I might have aspired to...

if it makes you feel any better, Cerebus is probably the only thing on Earth I have this level of familiarity with.

I laughed really hard reading that, because my brain substituted The Mothers of Invention for... ah, forget it. I laughed, though.
