I can’t think of a better way to pay tribute to, and to remind people of, the artistic mastery Bernie Wrightson had and the impact he made–particularly in the field of horror comics–than for IDW to release an Artifact Edition spotlighting his work on Swamp Thing, the seminal character he co-created with Len Wein, also recently gone but never forgotten. Not when you can gaze upon their collaborative work with this lovingly reproduction book.
Bernie Wrightson began his career in the late 1960s, just barely out of his teens, and within a decade rose to prominence as the preeminent horror artist of his generation. This loving tribute to comics’ Master of the Macabre will showcase Wrightson’s ground breaking work in the DC Comics Mystery books and his legendary artistic turn on Swamp Thing. Additionally, we have assemble a number of rarely seen and completely (until now) unseen treasures.
It’s out this Wednesday, November 1st, and we couldn’t be happier than to give you a preview that can only hint at how breathtaking these pages look in this oversized book.
