    Description

    Bernie Wrightson House of Mystery #193 Cover Original Art (DC, 1971). This macabre masterwork is only the third fully-finished DC cover by Bernie Wrightson that Heritage Auction Galleries has offered to date. Who better than Bernie Wrightson to detail this blood-chilling burial scene for the yelp-yarn "Voodoo Vengeance?" No cartoonist can capture the essence of horror quite like Wrightson, and covers of this magnitude rarely surface. When they have, they've brought spirited bidding, hammering at $8,000-$15,000. Drawn during a peak period, this Bronze Age blockbuster has an image area of 10" x 15". The title logo is done in white ink/paint on an acetate overlay, and the main cover image is affixed to a piece of DC cover stock; otherwise, the art is in Very Good condition. A copy of the comic book is included with this lot.
