Description

    Bernie Wrightson Twisted Tales #2 Cover Original Art (Pacific Comics, 1983). Comic books published by upstart independent publisher Pacific Comics featured some of the best covers of the early eighties. Here's one of the very best -- a Twisted Tales cover that rivals anything EC published during their magnificent heyday. Artist Bernie Wrightson proved himself a modern-day Graham Ingels with this "ghastly" image of a "headhunter" (and foot, and hand), with his bloody ax ready to do more mayhem. Wow! The art is in ink over graphite on illustration board, with an approximate image area of 15" x 17.5", and includes a mock-up masthead (which was changed for the actual printed cover, which also expanded the art slightly); both the art and masthead are mounted to a backing board. The art is in Excellent condition. The art is signed, and dated 1982. C'mon, let's get Twisted!
