I remember where the little farmer guy comes in and there’s one panel where he’s looking out the window — there it is — 573 — and as I was penciling it I said to Dave, “Oh shit. All of a sudden it occurs to me that I want to do the reflection of the sun coming up in the window.” And he said, “How are you going to do that?” I said, “I dunno.” He said, “Do you think you’re gonna be able to pull it off?” And I said, “I dunno.” [Laughing.] (via Sean Michael Robinson: The Craft Behind Cerebus: An Interview with Gerhard (Part One of Three) « The Comics Journal) —Totally fascinating, as you might guess.
