House of Mystery #211 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover, Nestor Redondo art

Bernie Wrightson
House of Mystery v1 #211, 1973 - This horrific vampire-themed cover is followed by a humorous splash, both remarkably drawn by Bernie Wrightson. In Nestor Redondo's tale, a landowner and his daughter move to a small village, only to find it preyed upon by a werewolf. The illustrations are lovingly and meticulously detailed (see interior page below). On page 8, the transformation from man to werewolf is exquisitely drawn. Redondo continues to bring an unexpected sophistication to the genre. Other artists in this issue include Gerry Talaoc and Dan Green. This is number 18 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 5 of 16 House of Mystery issues with Redondo art and/or covers.
