Bernie Wrightson
Kong the Untamed v1 #2, 1975 - The title character rests by a campfire, unaware of the danger that creeps up behind him. Bernie Wrightson's extraordinary cover displays his mastery of light and shadow. The boy's illuminated figure is nicely detailed, his attackers less so as they emerge from the darkness. The brushwork on the distant trees is faintly impressionistic, and the grass and embers in the foreground are meticulously drawn. This is arguably Wrightson's best cover of the mid 1970s. Alfredo Alcala also does a fine job on the interior art. This is number 2 of 2 Kong issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Kong the Untamed issues.
