Show and Tell, Pt. 1
Written by Eric Reynolds | Filed under comic stripsChris WareCharles Burnsart 7 Feb 2008 4:53 PM

Evan Dorkin's recent, generous blog posts sharing convention sketches he's collected from the likes of Los Bros and Clowes have inspired me to share some small stuff I have at home in my studio that will fit on my teensy scanner and otherwise might just sit in here until I die and my wife or daughter sell it all on eBay.

First up, here's a card Evan himself gave me on the legendary Comic Book Legal Defense Fund Cruise, which has been on my bulletin board ever since.

I will collect one day.

Here's a piece I picked up at Comicon a few years ago for $30 (!). A "Li'l Abner" daily panel from 1951, mercilessly separated from its family by a greedy art dealer who thought he could get more for four pieces than one.

Here's a Charles Burns pencil rough for a panel in Black Hole:

And two panels edited out of Chris Ware's final Jimmy Corrigan edit (I think he just changed the wording slightly - "Reed" to "Dad", as I recall, but I haven't compared it for a few years):
