Seeing Sound #9: "This Is Going To Sting A Bit..."

Cerebus #224 (November 1997)
Art by Dave Sim & Gerhard
In this page, the reality of what is actually happening is conveyed in the speech balloons - Joanne is carefully cleaning Rick's small head wound - while the visuals depict how Rick is experiencing that reality - being chained in hell and attacked by a demon.

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
