Stephen Bissette pencils and inks; illustration; 2008; image size 9" x 11"'Gone, gone, o form of man...'
Fantastic black and red depiction of Kirby's Demon Etrigan by Bissette, a master of horror and the macabre. Bissette no longer produces comics and as a result his artwork has become increasingly difficult to find, this illustration shows that he has lost none of his skills. Pen and ink. Art is in excellent condition. Signed and dated by Bissette.
Stephen R. Bissette is an American comic book artist best known for his work with Alan Moore on their groundbreaking run on DC's Swamp Thing. A graduate of the first class at the Joe Kubert School of cartooning Bissette worked on a number of horror comics before landing Swamp Thing. In the years that followed he was an early champion for creators' rights and launched his own Spiderbaby Graphix which published the horror comics anthology Taboo and his own series Tyrant, a comic book biography of a Tyrannosaurus Rex which lasted only four issues. Bissette retired from comics to focus on teaching in 1999.
