DC SPECIAL SERIES (1977-81) Issue #2 Preliminary Sketch
VF: 8.0
Bernie Wrightson's name conjures up images of the most horrific, gruesome, and gorgeous scenes ever put to paper. His legion of fans clamors to own pieces he created that are appallingly beautiful to behold. Wrightson's legendary work on Swamp Thing garnered him the highest praise from both fans and artists alike, and this piece, painted and signed by Wrightson on thick illustration board, features the brutish bog beast in a ghoulish battle scene. This is preliminary art that served as the inspiration for the final design of the front cover of DC Special Series #2, printed in 1977 as a part of the title that ran from 1977 through 1981 with each issue focusing on a particular character. A uniquely original piece.
