Bernie Wrightson 1948-2017 RIP



In my opinion, “legendary” doesn’t quiet do justice to artist/illustrator/designer Bernie Wrightson. I remember seeing Wrightson at a comic book convention in Chicago in either 1995 or 1996. He was on a panel with several other artists. No offense to those other artists but the only person I remember on the panel was Wrightson since I was such a huge fan. I’ve been a devote of his since the early0-1980s when I found loads and loads of old Swamp Thing comics and Creepy magazines some kid’s mom was selling at a garage sale.

Wrightson will be missed but his work will live on and on and on — kind’a like the monsters he was most famous for drawing.
