The Weird #4 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
The Weird v1 #4, 1988 - His finest work on the series, Bernie Wrightson opens the story with the Batman and the Weird in extreme close-up. This detailed splash pages is quickly followed by a bold two-page spread of the Justice League under attack. Across nearly forty pages, Wrightson avoids repetition through varied layouts and deftly designed sequences. As the story progresses, numerous panels become larger and more spacious. Two splash pages occur toward the end, capping an outstanding effort. This is number 4 of 4 The Weird issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Weird issues.
