Berni Wrightson (1948-2017)

In tribute, here's a quartet of intro pages illustrated by Berni Wrightson...
...for DC's 100-Page Super Spectacular #4 (1971)
Titled "Weird Mystery Tales", the reprint anthology featured brand-new art for the section headers with Berni himself as a "host" doing intros...
BTW, none of these headers has ever been reprinted!
So, unless you own this HTF issue, this will be the first time you've ever seen these pix!
Here's the book's text piece, a never-reprinted story with a large Wrightson illo, and a cute twist ending!

Yep, Wrightson's the protaganist!

  1. Thanks for sharing those images. I picked up this 100-pager off the stands (no doubt attracted by the outstanding cover) and it was a blockbuster. That deadly demon on the cover remains to this day my single favorite Wrightson image, potent and lethal and more than a little bit scary.
