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.

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
