Sword of Sorcery #2 - Neal Adams art, Bernie Wrightson art & cover

Bernie Wrightson
Sword of Sorcery v1 #2, 1973 - Busy and ill-composed, Howard Chaykin's cover pencils are loose and erratic compared to later works. Bernie Wrightson does his best with the inking, but also lacks definition. The inside story fares better, with Neal Adams, Wrightson and others bringing clarity and interest to the initial drawings. This is number 2 of 2 Sword of Sorcery issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 2 of 3 Sword of Sorcery issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams, Wrightson or Sword of Sorcery issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist. Top 10 Adams comics, Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
