Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time #1 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time #1, 1993 - Captain Sternn was a Bernie Wrightson character introduced in Heavy Metal magazine, subsequently making an appearance in the 1980s film of the same name. This limited series continues his adventures with Wrightson both writing and illustrating. Although lengthy, the artist allows two splash pages for momentary pauses. His artwork meets expectations, but is slightly diminished by another inker. Shepherd Hendrix does an adequate job, but adds little to the overall aesthetic. The best panels are those that incorporate Wrightson's well known use of shadows. This is number 1 of 5 Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.
