Swords Of Cerebus: "What Happened Between Issues 20 & 21"


PAUL SLADE:
Published between 1981 and 1984, Dave's six Swords of Cerebus volumes were his first attempt to collect the book in a more permanent form. He gave each story included in these volumes a prose introduction, explaining where the book stood when he'd been working on that particular issue and how he was thinking of its prospects at the time. This is the last of the five intros from Swords volume 3.
“There is nothing even remotely resembling a washed out black on a Gene Day original,”
 says Dave. “And he is so clean!”

Next week: Necross the (ha ha ha) Mad.

I'd love to see some Gene Day pencils! I've never seen his original art.

Last week, i did happen to grab "The Nexus Chronicles," a big hardcover coffe table book that has loads of Steve Rude original pencil pages next to the inked versions. Lovely.
