Scorpion #2 - Bernie Wrightson, Walt Simonson art


The Scorpion v1 #2, 1975 - Series artist and creator Howard Chaykin gathers several colleagues to ink over his sometime erratic pencils. Bernie Wrightson appears to have confined his inks to the old "Hoodoo Lady" character on pages 9 and 11. Walt Simonson's contributions are scattered and generally less distinguishable. Throughout most of the pages, Chaykin's style dominates but to the detriment of the whole. Overall, none of the talented inkers is able to improve upon the artwork significantly. Other artists in this issue include Mike Kaluta and Ernie Colon (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Scorpion issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Scorpion issues with Simonson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Simonson or Scorpion issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics or Simonson checklist.
