Bernie Wrightson ORIGINAL SWAMP THING ZOMBIE PAINTING 12 x 18 FPG Card Set Art
Original FPG Trading Card Art To A Stellar Swamp Thing Emergence By Bernie Wrightson. SWAMP ZOMBIE, FOR ANY FAN OF SWAMP THING OR WALKING DEAD, THIS UNDEAD GHOUL OF THE SWAMP IS ILLUSTRATED BY NONE OTHER THAN THE MASTER OF THE MACABRE HIMSELF, THE CREATOR OF SWAMP THING, THE LIVING LEGEND BERNI WRIGHTSON. ALL ORIGINAL, NO STATS OR PHOTOCOPIES, THIS IS PURE ORIGINAL ART, AND IT'S A FANTASTIC ILLUSTRATION USED TO CREATE A TRADING CARD FOR THE FIRST SET OF BERNIE WRIGHTSON MASTER OF THE MACABRE COLLECTOR CARDS IN 1993. THE SWIRL MARKS AND HAZE AND SOFTNESS YOU SEE IN THE ITEM'S PICTURES IS ALL FROM THE PROTECTIVE MYLAR HOLDER THAT THE ART IS PRESERVED WITHIN, BUT IN PERSON YOU CAN SEE THAT THE DETAIL WORK IS INCREDIBLE AND IT'S ALL VERY SHARP AND ORNATE, NOT FUZZY AND SUBDUED AND GRAINY LIKE IN THE DISAPPOINTING IMAGES SHOWN HERE WITH THE LISTING. The pictures were taken through a heavy archival Mylar art sleeve which will remain with the art for the lucky new owner, but keeping it in the costly sleeve for the photographs made my pictures look lame, especially compared to viewing it in person; this museum piece is awe-inspiring! Note, on Bernie's website now, he has shirts, mugs, mouse-pads, and other goodies emblazed with this iconic "Swamp Zombie" creature, so support this true innovator of the horror genre if you're a fellow fan they're all black & white, while this one'glows' with color, literally, in the pinks, when a blacklight is nearby! Bernie Wrightson is a household name, especially among horror fans, thanks in large part to his terrifying covers for titles such as House of Secrets and Swamp Thing, plus his renowned illustations for such books as Frankenstein and Cycle of the Werewolf, and his paintings of the hideous monstrosities of foreboding nightmares, such as this. Only very rarely do you get a chance at something from the master of this haunting genre, of. Posterized quality, featuring his fabled Swamp Thing character, so don't take this opportunity lightly as it may not come around again.
