Web of Horror #2 - Jeff Jones cover, Bernie Wrightson art

Jeff Jones
Web of Horror v1 #2, 1969 - Jeff Jones' painted cover is appropriately strange, but lacks the compositional strength of his previous issue. The artwork also appears on the back cover with little discernible benefit. Bernie Wrightson contributes two engaging stories: the first features the artist's penchant for grotesque creatures, and the second is a masterfully illustrated tale of stranded astronauts. Their jungle-like destination is thick with richly detailed foliage on nearly every panel. Other artists in this issue include Alfred Payan, Michael Kaluta Ralph Reese and Roger Brand. This is number 2 of 3 Web of Horror issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Web of Horror issues with Jones art and/or covers.
