In corners where cobwebbing clings
his shadows hide horrible things
Each pen and brush stroke
the Gothic evokes
Of moodiness Wrightson's the king.
More than any other comics artist that emerged in the 1970s, Bernie Wrightson carried on the grand tradition of EC comics. The artistic heir to 'Ghastly' Graham Ingels, Wrightson's style also contains equal measures of fellow EC alums Jack Davis and Frank Frazetta.
