Giant-size Chillers v2 #3 - Bernie Wrightson cover, Barry Windsor Smith, Jack Kirby, Wrightson reprints

Bernie Wrightson
Giant-size Chillers v2 #3, 1975 - This series began as a showcase for mostly 1950s-70s horror reprints. All had new covers, including this one pencilled by Ed Hannigan and inked by Bernie Wrightson. Certain details on the gargoyle figure nicely display his handiwork, but overall Wrightson's efforts are too passive. His signature style is much more evident and enjoyable in his interior story, originally published in Chamber Of Darkness #7. Other notable reprints include a tale by Jack Kirby (Chamber of Darkness #4) and two from Barry Smith (Chamber of Darkness #3 and Monsters of the Prowl #9). See today's posts or more Wrightson, Kirby, Smith or Giant-size Chillers issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
