Of his work for DC, Bernie Wrightson’s most famous trafficked in secrets, mysteries and nightmares. It was born in the swamps of Louisiana and burrowed and slumped its way into the imaginations of readers and fans worldwide. It gave life to shadows, and the creatures that lived within them. It gave voice to our fears and horrors. It kept many a child up at night, and worried many a parent. It helped further the standards of comic book horror, while often pushing it into strange and wonderful new directions.
