Seeing Sound #4: Over-Heard Sex

Cerebus #113 (February 1989)
Art by Dave Sim & Gerhard
(from 'Seeing Sound' in Cerebus The Barbarian Messiah, 2012)
...Cerebus is trying to sleep in a room next to two people having sex: the speech balloons indicate different levels of physical activity of the couple, and the merging at the moment of climax is operating at several levels simultaneously, whereupon both again separate into the languid leisure of post-coital bliss.

Do you have a favourite example of Dave Sim's innovative lettering in Cerebus that you'd like to see featured here on A Moment Of Cerebus? Send in your selection (the issue and page number will do), together with a brief explanation of its appeal/impact on you, to: momentofcerebus [at] gmail [dot] com
