Showcase #84 / Nightmaster - Bernie Wrightson / Jeff Jones art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Showcase v1 #84 featuring Nightmaster, 1969 - In this third appearance of Nightmaster, Bernie Wrightson employs larger panels and more creative layouts (including the wild typography on the opening splash). As a result, scenes such as the underground cavern city on page 9 have greater visual impact. Jeff Jones' partial inks are more obvious than the previous issue, while Joe Kubert's cover is mediocre at best. This is number 12 of 19 Showcase issues with Kubert art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Showcase issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Jones, Kubert or Showcase issues. See also this blog's Jones checklist, Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics or Kubert checklist.
