    Description

    Bernie Wrightson The House of Secrets #100 Cover Original Art (DC, 1972). An ill-fated cover presented by "The Master of Macabre", in his gothic style that echoes the qualities of a classic fright film. This work was done just a year after Wrightson co-created the muck creature Swamp Thing in House of Secrets #92, and month before co-creating Destiny in Weird Mystery Tales #1, a character which would later be used in the work of Neil Gaiman, who said "Wrightson was the first comics artist whose work I loved." No matter the genre, the late Wrightson's impact on the comics community will be felt for decades to come. Ink and white paint over graphite on Sparta cover stock Bristol with an image area of 10" x 15". It is toned, with an art area stripped-in and held by tape on the back, stat logo and header paste-ups, light foxing, staining, and handling wear. Signed by Wrightson in the image area. In Very Good condition.
