Epic Illustrated #25 - Bernie Wrightson art, Jeff Jones cover

Jeff Jones
Epic Illustrated v1 #25, 1984 - Regal and serene, Jeff Jones' painted cover is a stark contrast to Bernie Wrightson's artwork inside. When a woman accidentally kills her impulsive husband, she decides to dismember the body. The panels include nudity and excessive violence, themes not unfamiliar to the artist. The disturbing imagery is nonetheless well drawn. In style and execution, the work is comparable to Wrightson's Creepshow movie adaptation. Other artists in this issue include Ken Steacy and John Bolton. This is number 1 of 2 Epic Illustrated issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Epic Illustrated issues with Jones art and/or covers.
