House of Mystery #209 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
Top ten comics by Bernie Wrightson, comic book artistHouse of Mystery v1 #209, 1972 - As stunning as his grim reaper cover is, Bernie Wrightson's splash of Cain the Caretaker is even better. Fine lines and fluid brushwork add dimension and interest to this darkened portrait. Monochromatic colors enhance an already cool, sophisticated scene. Though horrific in tone, the mangled hands and medieval mace emerging from the baby's crib add a touch of twisted humor. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Jim Aparo and Alfrdeo Alcala. This is number 17 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.
