Creepy #77 - Bernie Wrightson, Alex Toth art


Creepy v1 #77, 1976 - Unlike other issues, Bernie Wrightson's frontispiece appears in full color. His burdensome Santa Claus is terrific, but it's interior tale that stands out. "Clarice" tells of a tragedy during a winter storm in the mountains. Wrightson's superb drawings match Bruce Jones' poetic verse flawlessly. Alex Toth chronicles a pilot's strange encounter of a UFO during the 1920s. Thoughtfully laid out (see interior page below), the story is nicely representative of his work during the bronze age. Other artists include Richard Corben and John Severin. This is number 6 of 6 Creepy issues with Toth art and/or covers and number 13 of 19 Wrightson issues with Creepy art and/or covers. Wrightson's story was later reprinted in Creepy #113. See today's posts or more Toth, Wrightson or Creepy issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist, Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
