- Full Description
Bernie Wrightson began his career in the late 1960s, just barely out of his teens, and within a decade, rose to prominence as the preeminent horror artist of his generation. Showcases his early groundbreaking work in the DC Comics Mystery books, such as House of Mystery (14 plates), and his legendary artistic turn on the very first issues of Swamp Thing (73 plates), plus work from House of Secrets, Batman: The Cult, Unexpected, Spectre... Plus a number of rarely seen and completely (until now) unseen treasures. 152 pages plus three foldouts with six oversized pieces of art, including full color work.
This was first published in 2017 with two different covers. Both editions have since sold out. This has an entirely different cover than those two. The double sized fold-outs also feature an unpublished Swamp Thing cover, the original Swamp Thing Saga covers (2), Secrets of the Haunted House #5 cover, an unpublished Batman illustration, and a Superman #400 pin-up.
Michael Kaluta's heartfelt introduction details how much he owes to Bernie, as inspiration, as a friend, as a studio-mate in the legendary collective known simply as The Studio, 1975-79.
This is a wonderful tribute, now back in print to mark the passing of this incredibly talented artist.
Includes nine Swamp Thing covers (House of Secrets #92 and Swamp Thing #1, 3-6, 9, and others) and tons of Mystery covers, frontis pieces, and pages. All taken from the original artwork, and scanned in full color in order to capture every detail.
Also includes a full page biography, with pictures of young Bernie. Both this and Michael's introduction were written after Bernie passed away in March of 2017. Bernie was inducted into the Will Eisner Hall of Fame in 2014.
