Making a Splash: 13 of Berni Wrightson's Best

Happy Halloween, Groove-ophiles! Groovy Age Master of the Macabre, Berni Wrightson sure created some memorable supernatural splashes (and fearsome frontispieces, too), didn't he? Here are 13 of Ol' Groove's faves (in no particular order) from DC's House of Mystery, House of Secrets, and Warren's Creepy! How's that for a treat, tricksters?


  1. Love Berni W. at his best, and this is indeed fearsomely memorable and a treat, Groove, so thanks.


  2. Man, these are just ... spectacular (ha! Bet you thought I was going to say spooktacular, didn't you?)

    Anyway, happy Halloween, Groove!

  3. I never knew when I would pick up a HOM or HOS and be treated to a Berni Wrightson frontispiece. And what a treat it was. Better than the candy at Halloween.

  4. Absolutely astounding! I would love to have some original artwork by Wrightson. The closest I've gotten is a signed sketchbook.

  5. Is there ever such a thing as too much Berni Wrightson art?
    No, my friends, I don't think so.

    Thank you for this great sampling.
