Batman #320 - Bernie Wrightson cover

Bernie Wrightson
Batman v1 #320, 1980 - One of his few renditions of the Batman during the bronze age, Bernie Wrightson delivers this excellent cover. Fluid brushwork and textural effects raise the aesthetic standards. In the background, a dark hallway and dwarfish figure further the mystery. According to Wrightson's own initials (lower left), this artwork was actually drawn eight years earlier. Other artists in this issue include Irv Novick and Bob Smith. This is number 2 of 2 Batman issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.
