The Making Of A Cover: Following Cerebus #4

DAVE SIM:
The cover of FOLLOWING CEREBUS No.4 (May 2005):
  1. For some weird reason, I told Gerhard that I wanted to do the foreground building. Then, while I was working on it, I realized that I was doing my best Will Eisner imitation. No idea that Will would die in hospital shortly and that this would be the Will Eisner Tribute issue;
  2. Gerhard, as usual, does all the difficult stuff on tracing paper, having outlined my contributions;
  3. the finished black and white cover;
  4. the printed colour cover.

As I recall this was just the first of several covers with the "what if Gerhard had been there from the beginning?" theme. Coulda been, shoulda been.
