    Bernie Wrightson House of Mystery #188 Page 5 Original Art (DC, 1970). Frank Frazetta, Graham Ingels, Warren Kremer, Lee Elias, Bill Everett, and Jack Davis -- all artists who have made their mark in the field of horror illustration. One Bronze Age artist joins them, as among the foremost masters of terror -- one whose mere name evokes images of rotting zombies and fetid crypts, of muck-encrusted man-mockeries and foul creatures of the night. That, of course, is Bernie Wrightson. The modern Master of the Macabre first appeared on the comic scene in the early 1970s and he quickly made a name for himself. His fame was secured with his work on the original Swamp Thing, a short, but well-remembered run many consider a classic. The page offered here from "House of Madness" is an early effort from House of Mystery. Wrightson's genius is apparent even this early in his career (nearly a year before the introduction of Swamp Thing in House of Secrets #92). Measuring approximately 10" x 15", this chiller is in Excellent condition and is signed by the artist in the center of its lower margin.
