A True Master

November 15, 2008

I’ve been looking ar Mr. Door Tree’s super awesome Golden Age Comic Book Stories blog for a while now and I was hoping that at some point he’d post the Bernie Wrightson Frankenstein work and he did! I’ve seen bits and pieces of these over the years, but to see them all together is totally awesome!!! Bernie Wrightson is a true master of pen and ink craftsmanship. Do yourself a favor and check out the Wrightson Frankenstein pieces on Mr. Door Tree’s Golden Age Comic Book Stories blog. After looking at them you’ll be in shock and awe for a while, but eventually you’ll snap out of it and say to yourself where can I find more work by Wrightson. We’ll there’s some more work right on the Golden Age Comic Book Stories blog for starters and then you can go to a comic book shop and pick up some old Swamp Things and Captain Sternns featuring Bernie Wrightson. Then you could go to a used bookstore and pick get an old copy of Stephen King’s Cycle Of The Werewolf that has some more beautiful Bernie Wrightson illustrations in it. Finally you could swing past the video store on the way home to rent the Heavy Metal movie that has a Captain Sternn segment in it, but watch the whole thing because it’s totally awesome.
