Default RIP Bernie Wrightson

According to his wife on facebook, Mr Wrightson lost his battle with brain cancer. He was 1968.

For me his work on Swam Thing (which he co-created) wI'll always stick with me; I read and reread those issues many, many times.

He was one of the best horror artists out there, even his work on some of
Stephen King's books was stellar!! He will definitely be missed....

I still remember an early Eerie or Creepy that reprinted his art that he'd sent in through a letter to the editor. His Cycle of the Werewolf art was a lot of fun, as were his Frankenstein illustrations.

My brother reminded me he also did design work for hollywood films.
