Dead of Night v1 #11, 1975 - The Scarecrow makes his first appearance in the last issue of this Marvel horror title, previously a vehicle for Atlas reprints. Unlike DC's villainous counterpart, this character is one of several monster/heroes introduced during the bronze age. Bernie Wrightson inks over Gil Kane's pencils on the cover, but unfortunately doesn't meet expectations. His brushwork on the title character is impressive, but the rest of the layout is too lightly applied. Overall, his distinctive style only partially emerges. This is 1 of 1 Dead of Night issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Dead of Night issues.See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
