Not a surprise to anyone who has keep his or her ear to the ground about the matter, but Bernie Wrightson passed away. I'm not the biggest fan of illustrated fiction, but Bernie was the best of the best. His work in Creepshow, Cycle of the Werewolf, The Stand, Swamp Thing, and Frankenstein is unparalleled. He did a lot of comic work for both DC and Marvel. I never met the man, but by all accounts he was a genuinely good guy and a huge fan of our genre.

Yes, not unexpected but sad to hear all the same.  RIP, sir...your contributions to the genre were many and lasting.

Just awful news.  The man was unequalled when it came to our beloved genre.  One of those rare artists  who could dramatically improve and enhance an already good story with his work.

RIP, sir.

 Oh...GET...THE...FUCK...OUT...OF...HERE.
Seriously?
I read a few weeks ago that he was officially retiring due to his health, but I was not expecting this. Wow.
To say I'm devastated would be an understatement.

Yeah, this one hurts. Wrightson is up there with giants like Frazetta, Tim Kirk, and Lee Brown Coye

 I need to dig out my copy of CREEPSHOW today. I read that thing ragged when I was a kid.
