R.I.P., Berni Wrightson

One of the greats has left us after a long fight with brain cancer. Wrightson was one of those few comic book artists who transcended comics. I'm not much of a horror guy, but I'd look at anything Wrightson drew.

    He will be sorely missed. I interviewed him back on 2012 for a blog crossover I organized. (That link can be found HERE if you're interested)

    When I was a teen, I never really got into ANY non-superhero comics until...I got Swamp Thing #1 (in 1972). The story by Len Wein was captivating and all, but the ART! Wow...apparently Wrightson on pencils, inks, AND colors! Awesome! It made me follow that series until #11, which was Nester Redondo...not a slouch either!

    I got a copy of this book when I was a child simply b/c of the art. I was 10 and couldn't give a crap about Frankenstein.
