Nerdy Show Interview: 40 Years of Cerebus the Aardvark with Gerhard

Cap 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 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.
