Berni Wrightson

The legendary unpublished cover by Berni Wrightson for The Spirit. Well, most of it, anyway. Contributor Ronn Sutton explains: "In 1973, Bernie was staying with me for a visit in Toronto and I photocopied the original art in nine sections at a local library. When I later tried to piece it together, I found that one section was missing." Thanks, Ronn! [Ye editor did major reconstructive work because of the photocopy's poor quality.] The Spirit © 1999 Will Eisner.
Looks like an unfinished House of Mystery/Secrets cover to us. By the glorious Bernie Wrightson in his 1970s prime. Thanks to Conrad Eschenberg for sharing this image! Art © 1999 Bernie Wrightson. Bernie Wrightson Interview
