    Bernie Wrightson Tales from the House of Mystery Paperback Illustration Original Art (DC, 1972-3). Few artists are able to juggle horror and realism like the great Bernie Wrightson and this page makes it more than obvious. Taken out of the vaults of one of the Tales from the House of Mystery paperbacks, this terror-de-force is top-of-the-line and you have to see it to believe it. The combination of rich black shadows, with textures as light as cobwebs, is masterfully handled by the horror heir-apparent Wrightson. The image area is 7" x 12.5", and the piece has been matted and framed to an overall size of 15" x 20". In Excellent condition, and signed by Bernie Wrightson at the lower right. From The Art of the Funnies Collection.
