Batman: The Cult #4 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
Batman: The Cult v1 #4, 1988 - Concluding the mini-series, Batman and Robin re-enter a Gotham City overrun by Deacon Blackfire's zealots. Despite some overuse of panel repetition, Bernie Wrightson's illustrations are somber, heavy and deadly serious. Two splash pages stand out: the first captures Bruce Wayne's nightmare of parental corpses and the second displays the Batman at his most determined. Wrightson's cover, like its predecessors, is up close and personal. This is number 4 of 4 Batman The Cult issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Batman: The Cult issues. See also this blog's Bernie Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
