Sub-mariner #36 - Bernie Wrightson art


Sub-mariner v1 #36, 1971 - During the 1970s, Bernie Wrightson rarely deviated from horror comics, but here he contributes to a Marvel superhero title. His dark, painterly style struggles with the genre. With the exception of a few appropriately mysterious scenes (see interior page below), the inks openly clash with Sal Buscema's pencils. Wrightson would return to the genre in the 1980s with greater success. This is number 1 of 1 Sub-mariner issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Sub-mariner issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
