Pré publié en 1982 dans Heavy Metal US.

Cette planche se révèle comme l'une des meilleures du récit, via la présence du personnage principal, celle des Freaks, et toute la démonstration du talent de Wrightson pour la mise en scène et son impressionnant travail sur la brume et les matières. Cette formidable case centrale, qui trouve son écho dans la première case, et les fumées du dernier strip, est une splendeur.

Une oeuvre pertinente du maître du macabre, qu'on savoure encore davantage vu son grand format.

Dimension du support : 38 x 56 cm

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
