Comment

Au verso de la carte #23 "Tendrills" figure le commentaire suivant:
"Never again will I go to bed with a full stomach of linguini with calamari sauce!"...rigolo!
Un regret, cette illustration a pris le soleil...la présentation de la maison de vente ne permettait pas de s'en rendre compte...pas de problème , cependant...elle me plaît trop!

About Bernie Wrightson

Bernie Wrightson was one of the best artists of horror comics, with a career spanning from the mid 1960s through the mid 2010s. Nicknamed the "Master of the Macabre", he was at his best when drawing grotesque monsters, vampires, werewolves, cyclopses, mummy's and other eerie creatures. He is praised for his visual storytelling, absurd humor and for his complex and detailed drawing technique, which makes use of a lot of shadow work and shading. Where his artwork is clearly inspired by other horror staples like Frank Frazetta and Graham Ingels, his moody pages also breathe the atmosphere of writers like Charles Baudelaire and Edgar Allan Poe. He has worked extensively for the horror and mystery titles of DC Comics, for which he created 'The Swamp Thing' with writer Len Wein. He is also known for his comic adaptations of classic horror stories and his collaborations with Stephen King. Later in his career, he has done design work for the movie industry. Text (c) Lambiek

becoolman Malgré le coup de soleil cette trading card a gardé toutes ses qualités graphiques. Une des pièces récemment mise aux enchères si Je ne me trompe. Une bien belle acquisition. On pense à Evil Dead sorti en 1982 . Wrightson excelle ici a montrer l horreur organique.

Zibbhebu Une belle pièce tout de meme, malgré son coup de soleil. Bernie Wrightson n'a pas son pareil pour les atmosphères horrifiques.
