A few years ago I scanned all of Dave Sim's notebooks. He had filled 36 notebooks during the years he created the monthly Cerebus series, covering issues #20 to 300, plus the other side items -- like the Epic stories, posters and prints, convention speeches etc. A total of 3,281 notebook pages detailing his creative process. I never really got the time to study the notebooks when I had them. Just did a quick look, scanned them in and sent them back to Dave as soon as possible. So this regular column is a chance for me to look through those scans and highlight some of the more interesting pages.
This week it is going to be a quick column as I was in New Jersey this weekend rather than at home working on this article. . .Such is life some times. Anyhoo, this week we're looking at Albatross, Too. Also known as Dave Sim's second Cerebus notebook, we've only seen it once before in Albatross, Too. It covers Cerebus #28 to 37.
So without follow ado, some Dave Sim sketches of Moon Knight Roach. Plus what appears to be Moon Roach's alter ego, the cab driver, Blake Jockley.
