Secrets of Haunted House #5 - Nestor Redondo art, Bernie Wrightson cover

Bernie Wrightson
Secrets of Haunted House v1 #5, 1975 - Several hosts from other horror titles chide Destiny, whose own Weird Mystery Tales had just been canceled. The Nestor Redondo art on this intro page is humorous, yet beautifully and conscientiously drawn. Also maintaining a high standard is cover artist Bernie Wrightson, whose twisted jack-o-lantern peers menacingly at the reader. Quietly composed, it's one of best Halloween-themed covers of the era. Other artists in this issue include John Albano, Tenny Henson, Ernie Chua, Vince Colletta and Bill Draut. This is number 1 of 2 Secrets of Haunted House issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 3 of 4 Secrets of Haunted House issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Redondo or Secrets of Haunted House issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Wrightson comics, Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
