S.M. Watson's Cerebus

Advert from Cerebus #27, June 1981
That's over 30 years ago, so don't even think about responding!

UPDATE FROM MARGARET LISS:
Two versions of the doll were made, Sarah "Sally" Hitchens did the first one - see issue #7, the tall one, and then Sheila Watson did them, and they were the smaller ones. Sheila also made the tall ones for a while -- the price was dropped (see issue #11) at which time the dolls shrunk by a foot. The one currently on ebay appears to be the taller one, though not worth $395 imho. I took some pictures of the dolls I've gotten over the years:

Oh, man, those are neat looking. Can we get a mass produced version if the movie ever comes to fruition?

Not for me, you understand. For...um...

OK, for me.

How cool would a stuffed Cerebus holding a stuffed Missy be? Gin for everyone!
