Eerie v3 #71 - Bernie Wrightson art


Eerie v3 #71, 1976 - Bernie Wrightson's penchant for jack-o-lanterns is well documented, particularly throughout the bronze age. As in other examples, this illustration nicely combines both elements of humor and horror. Note the sublime quality of the fine lines of hay in the background. These contrast directly against the most graphic rendition of the figures (especially the main character). As with many other bronze age works, Wrightson demonstrates his mastery of depicting light and shadow. Other artists in this issue include Jose Ortiz, Paul Neary, Luis Bermejo, Gonzalo Mayo and Esteban Maroto. This is number 13 of 14 Eerie magazine issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wrightson or Eerie issues.
