Eerie v3 #66 - Bernie Wrightson art

Eerie v3 #66, 1975 - Turning from horror to sword and sorcery, this edition showcases the exploits of the hero El Cid. Consistent with the theme, Bernie Wrightson depicts his own version of the sword-wielding Spaniard (see interior page above). Skeletons attack and decapitated skulls fly against a powder blue background. Cousin Eerie's dialogue is perhaps too wordy and nominally gets in the way. Wrightson's meticulous drawing contrasts in style with the main feature, easily besting Gonzalo Mayo's artwork. Other artists in this issue include Sanjulian (cover). This is number 9 of 14 Eerie magazine issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wrightson or Eerie issues.
