Red Circle Sorcery #7 - Bernie Wrightson, Jeff Jones art

Red Circle Sorcery v1 #7, 1974 - The publishers of Archie Comics try their hand at a mystery series under the imprint Red Circle Comics Group. Lasting only eleven issues, I was pleasantly surprised to see some terrific work by some established artists. Bruce Jones illustrates a story about two lifelong rivals, but his pencils are unfortunately sloppy and erratic. Bernie Wrightson and Jeff Jones lend a hand with the inks but are only partially successful in adding clarity. Division of responsibilities is not always clear, but Wrightson's hand is most evident on page three and the same with Jeff Jones on page four. Other artists in this issue include Vincente Alcazar, Carlos Pino and Gray Morrow (art and cover). This is number 1 of 1 Red Circle Sorcery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Red Circle Sorcery issues with Jeff Jones art and/or covers. See today's posts, more Wrightson, Jones or Red Circle Sorcery issues. See also this blog's Bernie Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics or Jeff Jones checklist.
