Creepy #62 - Bernie Wrightson art



Creepy v1 #62, 1974 - Possibly the best comic adaptation of an Edgar Allen Poe tale, "The Black Cat"showcases the talents of Bernie Wrightson. Each panel is meticulously drawn, from the intense main character to the Victorian-era settings. The artist's high-contrast style looks beautiful in black and white, combining dark, foreboding shapes with sensitive brushwork (see interior page below). His layouts are carefully paced, building up tension toward several climaxes. The result is one of Wrightson's finest bronze age achievements. Ken Kelly's painted cover replicates one of the story panels inside. Other artists in this issue include John Severin, Vicente Alcazar, Richard Corben, Gonzalo Mayo and Isidro Mones. This is number 1 of 19 Creepy issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints).
