    Bernie Wrightson Captain Sternn and the Space Pirates Illustration Original Art (undated). The origins of Bernie Wrightson's character Captain Sternn were detailed in Christopher Zavisa's book Berni Wrightson: A Look Back. It says, "Inspired by 'Star Wars,' Wrightson set out to write and illustrate his own 32 page space opera. The book was to be published in color and issued by Tyrannosaurus Press. 'Captain Sternn and the Space Pirates' was also to be a pleasant diversion from the serious work of illustrating Frankenstein. Wrightson completed about eight pages and decided that by the time he could finished it, the 'Star Wars' would have long vanished." Considering that the "Star Wars" craze is still going, Bernie had time! Ink over graphite on thick board with an image area of 10.5" x 9". Mild toning along the edges, and soft corner wear. In Excellent condition.
