The death of truly fantastic illustrator, film designer, and comics creator Bernie Wrightson was announced yesterday, after his long battle with brain cancer. He was 68.
While perhaps best-known for co-creating the DC Comic Swamp Thing with Len Wein in 1971, as well as fruitful collaborations with Stephen King, Wrightson’s output was stunning and prolific and lasted decades. A toast to Bernie.
