Bernie Wrightson’s Frankenstein

Guillermo recently made this statement on his FRANKENSTEIN project in an MTV Interview:

“It will be a completely different monster. If you want to get an inkling, I would love for Bernie Wrightson to design the creature….If you know Bernie and know how he designs, that’s the creature I want to do.”

Bernie Wrightson is a comic book artist and is well known for his horror illustrations. In 1971, with writer Len Wein, Wrightson co-created SWAMP THING for DC. According to Wikipedia, Wrightson spent seven years drawing approximately 60 detailed pen-and-ink illustrations to accompany an edition of Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein.
Guillermo reportedly owns some of the original artwork.

Here are a few select images from Wrighton’s FRANKENSTEIN that I like. You can view more here and here.
