The Spectre #9 - Bernie Wrightson art

The Spectre v1 #9, 1969 - In Bernie Wrightson's back-up story, The Spectre becomes more of an observer of events rather than a full participant. A magician sells his soul to the devil in order to rule a small country, while the Spectre awaits in judgment. Wrightson's dark foreboding style seems to perfectly fit the character, more so even than the previous Neal Adams issues. His fluid brushwork adds an attractively eerie quality throughout the pages. This story was later reprinted in House of Mystery #224. Other artists in this issue include Jerry Grandenetti, Jack Sparling and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Spectre issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Spectre issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
