    Description

    Bernie Wrightson Creepshow Partial Story "The Crate" Original Art Group of 2 (New American Library, 1982). Getting Bernie Wrightson to illustrate the adaptation of Stephen King's Creepshow was a stroke of genius. It is the finest homage to EC Comics that one can imagine. This story segment, titled "The Crate", starred fan-favorite actress Adrienne Barbeau as Wilma Northrup, and Hal Holbrook as her long-suffering husband Henry. As much as fans love her, the scene included here where Henry daydreams of shooting her was one of the most startling (and satisfying) in the movie. The pages were brilliantly created in ink and gouache on illustration board with image areas of 12.5" x 16".
