Where are my comic book fans? I know there are a few of you out there!
Bernie Wrightson is an american artist known for his comic books and horror illustrations.
Bernie started out as an Illustrator for The Baltimore Sun, his local newspaper. Not long after that, he attended a comic book convention in New York City and became inspired to create his own comic books.
You guys remember Swamp Thing, right? This monster in the vertical image to the far left, was co-created by Bernie and writer, Len Wein in House of Secrets which was published by DC Comics. He created plenty more comic books but I thought swamp thing was probably the most popular. Feel free to check out his Wikipedia page for more background.
Thank you to my coworker, George, for introducing me to this talented artist!
