I, too, am a huge fan of Berni! Had the pleasure of meeting him a couple of times... very nice, personable guy.

Thanks for posting this. I don't have my copy anymore, but I recall this being one of the first art books I ever bought back in the late 70s, along with 'The Studio'. I always thought it was a very unusual item to find imported in a book shop in the North of England, especially at a time when we didn't have comic shops here.

SW 2 and 7, and HOS 92 are among my favorite Wrightson covers. All masterpieces.

Swamp Thing #7 is one of my all time favorites as well. Dunno why there's practically no demand for this book.

Another of my favorite classic Bats covers. I've got an old label 8.5 in addition to the below, but don't have a scan.

when i got back into comics, the 1st ones i started to get were bronze horror books. this lead to finding his massive hardcover retrospective. pricey but well worth it

Inspired to do a group shot. I posted some of the slabs earlier in the thread. I have SS books by Wrightson (ST #3, #5 and 3 copies of #9) that should be back next week.
