Cerebus artwork by Dave Sim and Gerhard does not come to auction, often. Especially considering Sim created 6000+ pages of it, it is quite the rarity, and with Sim's wrist injuries, we're not going to be getting much more. As part of this weekend's
The last time Heritage had a page of Cerebus art, it was a triptych from Cerebus #111/112 and sold for over $5000. Before that, they had a cover to Cerebus #30 that went for over $14,000. Previously, for interior art, you would have to go back to 2013, for a sale from Cerebus #35 for one page for over $3500.

Cerebus ran from December 1977 until March 2004, and continues today as a series of one-shots, Cerebus In Hell. The comic began as a parody of sword and sorcery comics, primarily Barry Windsor-Smith's version of Conan the Barbarian and of Michael Moorcock's fantasy work, but evolved to explore a variety of other topics, including politics, religion, and gender issues, getting more and more controversial as it went along.
