The Comics Industry Remembers Bernie Wrightson

We learnt late last night that master illustrator and comics creator, Bernie Wrightson, had passed away. Those who were touched by his work in and around comics have been sharing their memories, experiences and condolences. Here are just a few.

Dan Wickline posted to the Bleeding Cool Slack:

I met him at a BBQ at Steve Niles house. They used to get together with their wives and play scrabble every week. I sat in the back yard on a bench talking to Bernie for hours at the bbq, about the industry, his art… anything and everything. And when I went to leave, he hugged me. He was that friendly and open every time I saw him before he moved to Texas. He was exactly how you wanted him to be. He was a comic legend that makes you believe the industry is great.

Many, many more to come.
