House of Mystery #211 - Bernie Wrightson art & cover, Nestor Redondo art (Top 10)

Bernie Wrightson

10.  House of Mystery v1 #211, 1973 - This horrific vampire-themed cover is followed by a humorous splash, both remarkably drawn by Bernie Wrightson. In Nestor Redondo's tale, a landowner and his daughter move to a small village, only to find it preyed upon by a werewolf. The illustrations are lovingly and meticulously detailed (see interior page below). On page 8, the transformation from man to werewolf is exquisitely drawn. Redondo continues to bring an unexpected sophistication to the genre. Other artists in this issue include Gerry Talaoc and Dan Green. This is number 18 of 27 House of Mystery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers (not including reprints) and number 5 of 16 House of Mystery issues with Redondo art and/or covers. This issue is also one of my Top 10 Redondo comics and included in this Wrightson gallery. Find >this issue or more >Redondo, >Wrightson or >House of Mystery issues on ebay.
