Swamp Thing Co-Creator and Artist Bernie Wrightson Had Died

Swamp Thing Co-Creator and Artist Bernie Wrightson Had Died

His true love was always horror as his co-creating Swamp Thing for DC showed. The news was shared on his website by his wife, Liz Wrightson. Bernie was a friend to just about everyone in comics, an outgoing, life loving personality. In 1966, Wrightson began working for The Baltimore Sun newspaper as an illustrator.

The world of comic books has lost another legend, as artist Bernie Wrightson, known primarily for his work on horror comics and being the co-creator of DC Comics' iconic horror hero Swamp Thing, has passed. Artist Jim Lee called Wrightson's work "unparalleled" in its style and technique.

His first professional comic work appeared in House of Mystery #179 in 1968. Wrightson's huge body of work includes illustrations for an adaptation of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, the co-creation of Swamp Thing in 1971, and collaborations with horror writer Stephen King, among many other artistic achievements.

Wrightson helped to create the character Destiny, which was made famous in author Neil Gaiman's The Sandman series, and also worked on Batman. He left DC three years later to start a career in horror art, becoming known for his vivid takes on scenes from tales by H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. Additionally, if you've seen the fantastic 1981 animated film Heavy Metal, then you might remember the "Captain Sternn" segment. He later collaborated with Marvel Comics on Spider-Man, and The Punisher. He also worked as a conceptual artist on several films, such as the original Ghostbusters, Galaxy Quest, George A. Romero's Land of the Dead, and Frank Darabont's Stephen King film The Mist.

In addition to his wife, Wrightson is survived by by two sons, John and Jeffrey, and one stepson, Thomas Adamson.
