House of Mystery #231 - Bernie Wrightson cover

Bernie Wrightson
House of Mystery v1 #231, 1975 - A werewolf is seized upon by two men as other villagers arrive bearing torches. Bernie Wrightson's cover uses flailing limbs and weapons to divide up the negative space. The exaggerated folds in the clothing are typical of his eclectic style. Although he probably had little say in the colors, the lighter, softer palette seems to contradict the frenzied scene. Other artists in this issue include Ricardo Villamonte and Gerry Talaoc. This is number 24 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or House of Mystery issues.
