Comment

Comme convenu, voici un autre dessin preparatoire pour le film Ghostbusters d Ivan Reitman (1984) avec Bill Murray et Sigourney Weaver.
Ce zombie est bien plus proche du zombie du film Creepshow de Romero (et dont Bernie Wrightson assura l adaptation bd. D apres scenario de Stephen King) que de la morte vivante qui hante la bibliotheque au debut du film !
La posture du zombie fait tres Thriller de Landis avec Michael Jackson ! (Pas etonnant puisque le clip etait sorti en 1982 soit un an avant ce dessin preparatoire)

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
