Have you seen me?

(11:32pm PST) UPDATE: Thanks to everyone who wrote in and also to everyone who helped us to get the word out. The owner of the art contacted us today and we are very close to wrapping up so look for The Complete Eightball 1-18 available from Fantagraphics books later this year!

We are trying to locate the original cover art for Eightball #7. We believe it was last owned and perhaps still in the possession of a Sam Hughes as seen on the website “Comic Art Fans”. We’ve haven’t had any luck contacting him directly as his post was made over 10 years ago.

So we are casting out a wider net hoping that someone that reads this will have a tip, lead, or some kind of information concerning this piece of art. If you do, please contact Mr. Clowes is offering a sketch to anyone that provides us with a print quality scan of this line art and is offering a gift to anyone with information that directly leads us to locating this art.

And even if you don’t have any info but want to help, please help us spread the word by blogging/sharing/RTing this post. The final touches are being made on the project that this is needed for, The Complete Eightball 1-18 which is due out later this year from Fantagraphics, so we hope to find this soon!
