House of Mystery #201 - Bernie Wrightson art


House of Mystery v1 #201, 1972 - Bernie Wrightson does the first of many excellent splash pages for the title. This one features a humorous portrait of Cain with the Frankenstein monster. These exquisitely rendered splashes set the tone for the rest of the book, usually surpassing much of the interior stories. Jim Aparo draws "The Demon Within", a classic tale that is among the most reprinted stories of the 1970s horror genre. Other artists in this issue include Sam Glanzman and Mike Kaluta (cover). This is number 11 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Bernie Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
