Creepy #73 - Bernie Wrightson art

Creepy magazine v1 #73, 1975 - Reflecting the issue's science fiction theme, Bernie Wrightson places Uncle Creepy on a desolate planet. There's exceptional linework throughout, particularly on the (American?) striped flag and the rocky terrain. The two different textures nicely contrast the pinpointed stars in the distance. Unlike some other Wrightson splashes, this one isn't printed on the inside front cover. Other artists in this issue include Paul Neary, Richard Corben, John Severin and more. This is number 10 of 19 Creepy issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wrightson or Creepy issues.
