Legendary comic book and horror artist bernie has passed away, after a long struggle with brain cancer. Wrightson is best known as the co-creator of Swamp Thing; but he had a long career that included work for Warren (including the famous story, "Jennifer"), National Lampoon, Marvel, Heavy Metal and some of the independent publishers. His Captain Sternn was featured in the Heavy Metal movie and he did design work on the movie Serenity. on the Reavers and the poster and graphic novella for Creepshow (inspired by his beloved EC Comics).

My favorite comic work is Captain Sternn; but, probably his greatest artistic work was Frankenstein, where he created illustrations of the novel, simulating old illustrative techniques.

A truly talented artist. His art on House of Mystery was the selling point for the book to me.

Odd, I grabbed his Hulk vs Thing book for my reading pile last week.

Was a big fan of his Batman:Cult mini and his Jennifer story and Creepshow as mentioned above.

RIP
