Great Covers – HOUSE OF SECRETS #92

An admitted classic, this Bernie Wrightson HOUSE OF SECRETS cover on the first appearance of Swamp Thing is really worth a closer look. The tonework is subtle and immaculately done, and the image is composed elegantly. All of the elements work, including the sensitive coloring. As some people will already know, Wrightson used a lot of photo-reference and models in his work, and it was future writer and editor Louise Simonson who posed for the woman on this piece.
