    Description

    Bernie Wrightson - Original Unused Cover Art Rough to Batman: The Cult #4 (DC, 1988). Considered by many to be the natural successor to horror legend Graham Ingels, Bernie Wrightson's work fairly drips with menace and mood. Even in his loose pencil roughs, the dramatic qualities of his art, including his trademark use of shadows and spot lighting, blaze through with an unmistakable brilliance. If you compare this piece with the final cover image, you'll find that Batman's props have changed considerably, giving an insight into Wrightson's creative process. This very clean piece is in outstanding condition. The 12"x17.75" image has been matted on a 20"x27" piece of foam board and is signed at the bottom right corner.

    More information about Bernie Wrightson, also known as Wrightson, Bernie, Berni Wrightson, Bernie Wrightson.
