More sad new passing of another great artist today, Berinie Wrightson. He
had been battling cancer over the last few years. I met Bernie last year at
SDCC, he was pretty weak but had a smile for everyone who came by his
table. He did some of my favorite comics including Swamp Thing alot with
teaming up with Stephen King for the Stand portfolio and before that a
great Frankenstein portfolio. I was lucky to see some of the original art used
for the Frankenstein portfolio at Guillermo del Toro: At Home with Monsters
at LACMA. A fantastic artist, someone you won't see the likes of again.

This is my only pieces of Wrightson art published in National Lampoon. I
absolutely love the brush work.

Was lucky enough to meet Wrightson along with Dave Stevens at a very poorly attended Con in Pasadena, CA in 2003.  Such nice guys and incredible talents!  Really bummed that we won't see their likes again.

Yes, another great one leaves us. This is our life now, to see all these giants going away.

A unique style, a wry sense of humor. One of the best.

I managed to track down a reasonably priced copy of a
FRANKENSTEIN book with his illustrations several years
ago just in time to meet him at a con. Very glad I got
to have him sign it. A beautiful piece of work for
sure.

Wrightson's art was intriguing to me from early on in my
comic reading days. I remember pouring over the pages
of the HULK/THING graphic novel.

When you think of the all-time great comic book artists, he is definitely among the handful at the top. His passing is hard news to take, he will sorely be missed by all his many fans... Rest In Peace.

I met him in Kansas City, at Planet Comic Con, several years ago.  He visited with my, and I thanked him for his work.  R.I.P

Awful news, a unique talent... I especially recall obsessing over his "Cycle of the Werewolf" images back in my teen years in the '80s.

RIP
