DescriptionBernie Wrightson - Freak Show, Splash Page 37 Original Art (Heavy Metal, circa 1982). Bernie Wrightson's detailed inking on this chiller rivals the fine pen work of illustrator Franklin Booth as well as that of EC horror comics alumni Graham Ingels and Jack Davis. In the story, Freak Show, a humble man, lonely at heart, seeks out the rejected "special people" of the world, taking these misbegotten outcasts under his wing in a traveling show of oddities, performing from town to town. In his lonely journey, this man of compassion also seeks something else, a mate -- someone to love -- willing to return all the kindness he's shown his less fortunate troupe of oddities. When he finds that someone, his life is complete -- until her pregnancy. She gifts him with a "special" child of his own. His fury at God and the world for such a betrayal drives him to a state of revenge and hatred that reveals his true inner self -- a self his traveling carnival of "special people" wreaks its own twisted revenge upon. Wrightson poured all of his talent into this splash page and spared no effort to produce a show-stopping horror scene. This splash has an image area that measures 13" x 17.25", and the art is in Excellent condition. The page was inscribed and signed at the lower right.
