RIP Bernie Wrightson



I'm sad to hear about the passing of horror illustrator and concept artist Bernie Wrightson (1948-2017). He's at the center of this picture, which also includes Pete Von Sholly (far left) and Dave Merritt at Jonas' Studios in 1993.

Always admired his work. He and I were doing stuff for fanzines (does anyone under 50 even know what those are anymore) during the same period but unfortunately our paths never crossed. Although I got out of the genre I was always drawn to his stuff (no pun intended) and would get somewhat caught up with his latest during infrequent visits to comic conventions the last couple decades. Can anyone recommend a decent biography?
