House of Mystery #193 - Bernie Wrightson cover

Bernie Wrightson
House of Mystery v1 #193, 1971 - This extraordinary cover is Bernie Wrightson's first on this title. Unlike previous issues, the illustration fills the entire space the help of a transparent masthead. The eerie, wolf-like dog gazes toward the hidden witness, effectively tying the foreground and background together. Wrightson's fine brushwork is very much in evidence here. Other artists in this issue include Tony DeZuniga and Bill Draut. This is number 8 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or House of Mystery issues.
