DC Special #11 / Monsters - Neal Adams / non-attributed Bernie Wrightson cover, Jack Kirby reprints

Neal Adams / Bernie Wrightson
DC Special v1 #11 presents Beware the Monsters, 1971 - Neal Adams and Berni Wrightson join forces on this ominous cover. Despite the large amount of text, the artists create an indelible image. The inking is particularly well-crafted. Collaborations between the two artists are few, but this example perfectly melds both of their respective styles (comic book guides fail to credit Wrightson). Inside, reprints from fill most of this issue, including two Jack Kirby tales (from House of Mystery #70 and #85). Other artists in this issue include Sergio Aragones, Jack Sparling and Bernard Baily. This is number 1 of 1 DC Special issues with Wrightson art and/or covers and number 4 of 5 DC Special issues with Adams art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Adams, Kirby, Wrightson or DC Special issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Kirby checklist, Wrightson checklist, Top 10 Adams comics or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
