13 COVERS: A BERNIE WRIGHTSON Birthday Celebration

Do you dare enter… the HOUSE OF MYSTERY

Don’t you find it fitting that comics’ master of the macabre, the late Bernie Wrightson, was born in the shadow of Halloween?

I do. Wrightson was born Oct. 27, 1948, and died in 2017. You can’t think of horror comics without him.

So here are 13 COVERS from — fittingly — the House of Mystery.

(Oh, and make sure you check out modern heir Kelley Jones’ tribute to one of his central artistic inspirations. Click here.)

  1. Wrightson was so good that you could easily assemble another 13 cover set, or two, just as outstanding as this one.
