In Sketching Comedy’s debut episode, “Swamp Thing” we pay homage to late and great comic illustrator Bernie Wrightson. Bernie got his professional start in, in House of Mystery #179. Wrightson’s huge body of work includes illustrations for an adaptation of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, the co-creation of Swamp Thing in, and collaborations with horror writer Stephen King, among many other artistic achievements. According to his obituary, Wrightson “spent seven years drawing approximately 50 detailed pen-and-ink illustrations” for the Frankenstein project, something Wrightson felt was “among his most personal work.” Beyond comics, Wrightson did concept art for “films such as Ghostbusters, Galaxy Quest and Spider-Man,”
