Well, if you floated by after I said I was not going to be here... just in case... then you pick up a little bonus for your stalwart effort! Not only did Ger send along the finished "Twenty-Seven," today, but (at least from the Beijing Marriott) I'm (clearly) able to see and log on to blogger.com in China (for the first time). The inked-only version is currently in the land of misfit toys (or someplace like that)... I'll pass it along if it shows up.
Otherwise, just enjoy the living hell out of these.
At the end of issue 12, Cerebus has a boat full of gold as he travels along that canal in Beduin (part of the Feld River) next to the Merchant/Cockroach's house. Then the bottom drops out (of the boat, literally), and a ton of gold coins (and his original grey sword...) fall to the bottom of the canal.
A++ to Gerhard for rising (or diving, that is) to the challenge.
