Secrets of Sinister House #6 - non-attributed Bernie Wrightson cover

Secrets of Sinister House v1 #6, 1972 - Although comic book guides credit this cover to Michael Kaluta, a closer look leads me to believe Bernie Wrightson provided the inks. Note the sensitive brushwork on the ground, tombstone and wooden handle below. These two friends also collaborated during the bronze age (Shadow #3) and shared similar sensibilities. Feel free to share your own opinion in the comments section. Other artists in this issue include Alfredo Alcala, Bill Draut and Ed Ramos. This is number 1 of 1 Sinister House issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Sinister House issues.

  1. I'm in agreement with you. It does look like Wrightson inks.
