Gerhard: The Nerdy Show Interview

The Nerdy Show celebrates 40 years of a comic book milestone: Cerebus the Aardvark:
It’s an independent comic that took the world by storm, changed the industry forever, and broke bold new ground with its hilarious and heart-rending story. The series was written and drawn by Dave Sim with background artist, Gerhard. Together they chronicled the life of this ill-fated aardvark with Sim drawing the characters and Gerhard anchoring the cartoon animal into immaculately rendered environments. This archival HeroesCon panel is a one-on-one conversation with Gerhard as Cap Blackard learns about the artists’ collaborative process in creating the longest-running indie comic of all-time, how to ditch school but still get some book learnin’, and breaking beyond the background with Gerhard’s new project, The Smile of the Absent Cat, written by Grant Morrison for Heavy Metal.

I'd love to listen to more stories from Gerhard about his time on Cerebus.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again here, no matter where you encounter him, Ger is *always* the nicest guy in the room.

Great interview.
