Bernie Wrightson’s The Muck Monster Artist’s Edition Portfolio


BERNIE WRIGHTSON’S THE MUCK MONSTER: ARTIST’S EDITION PORTFOLIO-LIMITED EDITION




Limited to only 100 signed and numbered copies, Bernie Wrightson’s The Muck Monster Artist’s Edition Portfolio – Limited Edition features seven oversized art pages housed in a special deluxe variant hardcover. Each exquisite portfolio includes a signature plate hand-signed by the master of macabre himself, Bernie Wrightson. The Muck Monster was part of a series Wrightson created for Creepy and Eerie magazines in the 1970s. Wrightson is one of the most acclaimed horror artists of all time. His work as co-creator of Swamp Thing is hailed as a classic of horror illustration, but his undisputed masterpiece is his illustrated edition of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Seen here in its purest form, Muck Monster’s style is an obvious prelude to what would come in the artist’s later work. Each oversized art page is scanned and presented in original size, making every pencil line, eraser mark, and notation clearly visible. 


I highly recommend any Artist edition that IDW releases and if your a classic horror fan you have to read Wrightson, He is one of the best. You can order your copy from the IDW Limited store for $95.00
