Bernie Wrightson
House of Mystery v1 #194, 1971 - An eye-catching Bernie Wrightson cover begins this issue, modeled after one of the story panels inside (improving it in the process). This tale of satanic incantations and love triangles is rendered graphically by Alex Toth. Some panels verge on the simplistic with their thick lines and borders. Still, the overall storytelling is nonetheless effective. This story was later reprinted in DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #24Nestor Redondo makes his first professional start in American comics with a tale set in the European middle ages. When a weakling prince is elevated to the throne, he must prove himself worthy of protecting his people from a monstrous killer. Village and palace settings are gorgeously drawn in resplendent detail (see interior page below). A Jack Kirby reprint from House of Mystery #84 rounds out the book. Other artists in this bronze age comic include Russ Heath. This is 8 of 8 House of Mystery issues by Toth, 9 of 27 HOM issues by Wrightson and 1 of 16 HOM issues by Redondo. /// 1st start Nestor Redondo / Redondo gallery / Wrightson gallery
