One of my favorites artists passed away on the 19th. Bernie Wrightson
. Bernie was one of the co-creators of Swamp Thing. And did art for many other DC outings, as well as Marvel, Dark Horse, and Eclipse.
He had a longtime relationship with Stephen King- illustrated the comic adaptation of Creepshow, Cycle Of The Werewolf, and the hardbound uncut release of The Stand, and Dark Tower V: Wolves Of The Calla.
Bernie also created the character Captain Sternn who was featured in the 1981 animated film Heavy Metal.
