    Description

    Bernie Wrightson House of Mystery #1 Paperback Cover Original Art (Warner Books, 1972). Bernie Wrightson, a key founding member of the legendary art group, the Studio, was in peak form for this Bronze Age cover illustration. This "terror-iffic" scene was created for the 1973 Warner Books collection of eight spine-tingling Jack Oleck prose stories. We've noted it before, and we must emphasize it again, such a stunningly staged illustration as this must be viewed in person to fully experience the delicate color transitions found here -- no printed image could hope to capture its magnificent range of hues. For a Wrightson fan-addict, it just doesn't get better than this. This masterwork has an overall size of 14.5" x 22", and the art is in Excellent condition.
