Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time #2 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time v1 #2, 1993 - Five full page splashes and three double page spreads enhance this lengthy tale based on Bernie Wrightson's character. The artist adeptly pencils the story, but is neither helped nor hindered by the inking. The spreads are easily the issue's highlights. A stippled skin texture used on the dinosaurs nicely contrasts against the surrounding graphic renderings. This issue also showcases Wrightson's best cover of the series. This is number 2 of 5 Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Captain Sternn, Running Out of Time issues.
