The Weird #1 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
The Weird v1 #1, 1987 - What's weird is that Bernie Wrightson rarely did super-hero books in the 1970s, but embraced the genre in the 1980s. This limited series shows his first rendition of many DC heroes, including Superman, Martian Manhunter and Black Canary. Wrightson's cover is less interesting than his interiors, which are lushly illustrated in his distinctive style. Among his best scenes is the opening opening splash of a rain-soaked Superman. This is number 1 of 4 The Weird issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Weird issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
