Side note on Matt Dow's question about comparing the Kickstarter reproductions with the original artwork:
While it's true that there are things that you can only see in the original artwork, no matter how good the reproduction is, the CAN Portfolios are the closest we can GET to the original artwork: certainly closer than you get with either the books or the original comic books.
In terms of posterity, a big plus with the CAN Portfolios is that they function both as accurate-as-you-can-get reproductions and as artist tutorials: "Here's what I remember about this page. Here's the thinking that went into the page. Here's what the artist in me sees when he looks at this page, this many years later."
So, if there are any philanthropists reading this, there are more cartooning/animation/graphic novel courses at Community colleges and universities in your area than ever before: filled with students that may never have even heard of CEREBUS. CAN Portfolios are really perfect for introducing CEREBUS to those environments since the treatment is very much cartooning AS a profession. Here's what it looks like. Here's the thinking behind it.
Ideal donation material. We have no idea where artists AA BB and AABB might turn up.
DOWN TO THE LAST FEW HOURS. LOOKS LIKE WE MIGHT BE WITHIN STRIKING DISTANCE OF THE $30K "EVERYBODY GOES HOME HAPPY WITH DIGITAL FREE STUFF. COME ONNN, RICH PEOPLE!!" :)
