I don't know who did the colour (or, more likely, color) on it, but you can see what I'm talking about with Evan Dorkin's inking: it looks like a flat 10Y yellow covering the whole spotlight, but because of his perfect inking densities, you really get the sense OF a spotlight. I wouldn't even have attempted that: I'd have put all the yellows on the side facing away from the flashlight and cut some white into the image. With Evan's inking you don't need to do that.

He was definitely The Most Famous Single Page contributor to CEREBUS BI-WEEKLY. The first "Milk & Cheese" strip appeared in CBW#20.

Pretty cool stuff.

BTW, in case anybody's wondering, I submitted one of Dave's letters to me (actually, two of them that were linked in nature) for the weekly feature. But, I guess it was a pretty busy Saturday...
