Frankenstein by Bernie Wrightson


One of the late, great Bernie Wrightson's original art pieces for his Frankenstein series of plates has sold recently for $1,000,000. Please click on the picture above to see it in all its insanely-detailed Gothic glory. The selling price is a testament to the regard in which people hold the work and the man, a sadly missed master of the sequential art form. It really is a beautiful piece of work and must surely be the jewel in the crown of some lucky person's collection...

But... I was hoping someone might have bought it for me for my birthday ( for 'tis today )...
Oh, well...

It is a truly amazing piece of art from a wonderful artist. A $1m price tag is amazing price but it is a true art piece from a missed comic genius.

Indeed. It's the kind of price only the likes of Frazetta usually command. As ever with these situations, it's just sad that Bernie wasn't around to see it. Hopefully he made a decent profit from the original sale, but obviously nothing like this figure.
