The Unexpected #116 - Bernie Wrightson art


The Unexpected v1 #116, 1970 - In this brief Bernie Wrightson tale, a man's obsession with collecting string leads him to commit unexpected acts with dire consequences. Like his other early short horror stories of the bronze age, Wrightson displays an artistic polish and maturity beyond his years. Nick Cardy draws a brilliantly eerie cover, counting among some of his best works of the early 1970s (along with Teen Titans, Aquaman, Witching Hour, etc). Other artists in this issue include Sid Greene, Pat Boyette, Murphy Anderson and Jack Sparling. This is number 1 of 4 Unexpected issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wrightson or Unexpected issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
