The Shadow v2 #3 - Bernie Wrightson art


The Shadow v2 #3, 1973 - A large penitentiary draws suspicion from the Shadow and his team, leading them to the infamous mobster King Cobra. Series artist Michael Kaluta gets a hand from Bernie Wrightson, whose inks significantly enhance the artwork. The opening bank robbery scene (see interior page below) and the exploding prison walls (page 17) are but two of many fine panels. Though their respective styles work well together, few other collaborations come to mind (see House of Mystery #221). Prior to the first Shadow issue, Wrightson also did a stunning promotional ad in several DC issues, including Kamandi #2. This is number 1 of 2 Shadow issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Shadow issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
