Chamber of Darkness #8 - Bernie Wrightson cover, Steve Ditko reprints

Bernie Wrightson
Chamber of Darkness v1 #8, 1970 - On this outstanding Bernie Wrightson cover, a beast blatantly grabs a victim in the midst of a Halloween party. Finely applied brushstrokes give the creature increased depth and dimension. Among the costumed, Frankenstein peers tentatively in the background. Reprints fill most of the interiors, most notably two Steve Ditko tales from Strange Tales #90 and Tales to Astonish #15, respectively. Other artists in this issue include Dan Adkins, Bill Everett and Don Heck (reprint). This is number 2 of 2 Chamber of Darkness issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Ditko or Chamber of Darkness issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics or Ditko checklist.
