'Heroes for Hope' was a project Marvel did in 1985 with various artists and writers to spread awareness concerning the famine in Ethiopia (with all proceeds from the comic donated to relief). In addition to illustrating a segment written by none other than Stephen King, it was Bernie Wrightson who came up with the idea for the project and suggested it to Jim Shooter.

Warning for some graphic imagery.

"It was almost like a dry run for me. I had Frankenstein in mind and I wanted to do it. I had an idea what I wanted the drawings to look like; and 'The Muck Monster'—and a few other things I did for Warren—were the embryonic version of the penwork that finally showed up in Frankenstein." - Bernie Wrightson

Very sad to hear about the passing of Bernie Wrightson. In his memory, this was a story he wrote and illustrated for Eerie #68 that would serve as the groundswell for what would arguably be his magnum opus, the illustrated version of Frankenstein.

For those who don't know, Berni Wrightson once did illustrations for the novel Frankenstein and it's widely considered to be his definitive work. In my opinion its the best visual depiction of the monster.

In 2012 he started what was going to be a 13-issue miniseries with Steve Niles that served as a 'sequel' to the original novel. The second issue was delayed by a few months and the third issue by two years. As of 2017 the series remains unfinished. Given that Wrightson is sadly no longer able to draw I imagine that it will never be completed (I suppose they can find another artist but Wrightson was clearly the main selling point.)

So without further ado here is a glimpse at what might have been with the first issue.

Here's an original story from Eerie #58 that Berni Wrightson wrote in addition to illustrating.

Here's another story from Creepy to showcase Berni Wrightson's art in light of his retirement.

For those not familiar with the original story by Edgar Allan Poe, I'll preface this with a heavy warning for depictions of animal cruelty.

I posted this only a few months ago but in light of today's news with Berni Wrightson's health issues causing him to retire I figured I would share it again. 'Jenifer' is arguably one of Wrightson's most infamous horror works. It first appeared in Creepy #63. For those interested this was made into an episode of 'Masters of Horror' directed by Dario Argento. If I have the time and resources I may try to post further Wrightson comics in the future.

Warning for gore as well as a rape scene.

Here's a short story from Creepy #63. For those interested this was made into an episode of 'Masters of Horror' directed by Dario Argento.

Warning: There's some gory stuff here as well as what I think is an implied rape scene.

Recently, I was reading Moore's run on Swamp Thing, and the issue which reprinted the first Swamp Thing story (adding the Alex Olsen Swamp Thing to the Alec Holland Swamp Thing's mythos), and the framing story, featuring Cain and Abel got me to thinking about the pre-Sandman existences of some of the major characters...after tracking down their earlier appearances, it occurred to me to share the first appearances of the ones I knew of... (I'll be ignoring most of the superhero characters and John Constantine, since, with one exception, they only had roles in one arc, aside from The Wake. (Or, in the case of Wesley Dodds was barely a cameo in either of his appearances, even if they were in different arcs.))

Thus this post. )

So, there we go...hope you enjoyed.

As always, if you have any requests for any horror comics -- be it EC, Warren, a manga, etc -- let me know and I'll try to see if I can post it.

Note: Only one issue has come out so far, however this issue came out months ago and the second issue has been delayed. As such, I am posting seven pages.

So if you're a fan of the original novel (or just Berni Wrightson's art) you should definitely pick yourself up a copy. Hopefully future issues will come out in time; this came out in May.

This is a bit of a weird one, and not just because of its name. The Weird was a four-issue mini-series released by DC in 1988 and featuring two big names: writer Jim Starlin and penciller Berni (sans "e" as he signed himself at the time) Wrightson. For whatever reason, though, it seemed less than the sum of its parts, maybe just a little out of step with the times as two 70s comics icons found themselves in the late 1980s. The inks by Dan Green certainly didn't Wrightson's work any favours, and Starlin's interpretation of Superman is off, but on the other hand it's probably impossible for those two to go at something and not produce moments of worth.

That leads to these scans, from issue #2. The Weird is an energy creature from another dimension, escaped from slavery as a battery(!) to our world when his masters launch a plan to conquer the Earth. Unfortunately he can't live in this dimension in his non-corporeal form and solves the problem in the most literal way possible: he hijacks the body of the newly deceased Walter Langley and begins his quest to save the world. An initial encounter with the JLA gets him on the wrong side of the law, as they're concerned about the minor fact that his new body is unstable and when it blows he's taking a large chunk of the planet Earth with him -- The Weird knows this, but thinks he can finish his mission before that.

The nice moment is an extended sequence with Walter Langley's son, Billy (ummm....). Parts of The Weird still are Langley and he feels a need to find Billy and explain to him what is going before it ends up all over the 5 o`clock news.

I before E except after C? That's Weird. )

it's that I can give credit where credit is due. I'm not a fan of much of Devin Grayson's output, but she can write a darn good character scene, Jim Lee tends to leave me unimpressed, but he can draw a darn pretty Dynamic Duo from time to time.

And so, in the interests of fairness and honesty I have to say that I liked this inteview up at newsarama

In which Judd Winick speaks about his forthcoming arc on Batman and Robin.... )

Marvel tried to get all European back in the middle eighties, but they still used their spandex heroes for it. They hired Bernie Wrightson to draw Spider-Man.

My contribution to horror week. Nice juicy scans of five of the illustrations Berni Wrightson did for FRANKENSTEIN.
Along with "the Black Cat," this is the apex of his career, for me.

With the '1/3 fair use' rules being extended to short stories as well, I've decided to end my Warren posts. In my opinion, it would not work for the majority of the remaining stories--if you have a six page story, for example, only showing two pages would be hard, mainly because I would be recapping most of the story myself and the effect would be lost.

That being said, there are still some stories that I was really looking forward to sharing for quite some time that I was saving for the end, so I decided I would post excerpts from them anyway. Most of them are from Creepy, but there's an Eerie and Vampirella hiding around as well.
