Eerie v3 #68 - Bernie Wrightson art


Eerie v3 #68, 1975 - A precursor to his work on Frankenstein, Bernie Wrightson chronicles a scientist's failure to reanimate a corpse. The scenes are painstakingly detailed. His layouts are both engaging and inventive. Unlike other magazine works, his drawings benefit from being printed in full color (see interior page below). Wrightson displays considerable skill and passion with this effort. This story was later reprinted in Creepy #113 and Berni Wrightson Master of the Macabre #1Other artists in this issue include Ken Kelly, Leopold Sanchez, Esteban Maroto, Jose Ortiz and Paul Neary. This is number 11 of 14 Eerie magazine issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Wrightson or Eerie issues.
