Wrightson drew the first 10 issues of the series, co-creating Abigail Arcane and much of the Swamp Thing mythology. His wife, Liz Wrightson, confirmed the news via her husband's website on Sunday morning.
Wrightson was born in Dundalk, Maryland in 1948, and was raised on a steady diet of EC horror comics. He continued working on DC Comics' and Marvel Comics horror anthology titles for several years.
Wrightson was instrumental in creating some of the most wonderfully grim and beautifully terrifying images in comic history. In 1968, he showed copies of his sequential art to DC Comics editor Dick Giordano and was given a freelance assignment.
Lesser known is that he also co-created the character Destiny, which later gained popularity in Neil Gaiman'sSandman comic book series, published by DC's Vertigo. Aside from Swamp Thing, Bernie Wrightson was also well known for his work for Heavy Metal magazine, as well as his years-ahead-of-its-time illustrations of the Frankenstein monster.
In 1974, Wrightson left mainstream comics to work at Warren Studios, where he adapted the stories of H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe.
After leaving DC, Wrightson worked for National Lampoon and created illustrations for a number of novels, including editions of Frankenstein and Stephen King's Cycle of the Werewolf, The Stand, From a Buick 8 and Dark Tower V. His most notable Batman work is likely the miniseries Batman: The Cult, in which he collaborated with legendary writer Jim Starlin, but he has also provided dozens of covers and interiors in his six decade career. In recent years, he worked on the Monstrous Collection with 30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles. In addition to his wife Liz, he is survived by two sons, John and Jeffrey, and one stepson, Thomas Adamson.
