Where Monsters Dwell #8 - non-attributed Bernie Wrightson cover, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko reprints

Bernie Wrightson
Where Monsters Dwell v1 #8, 1971 - Not credited in comic book guides, Bernie Wrightson inks this cover by Marie Severin. It seems hurriedly done, with more effort focused on the four-armed demons than the victim. This ongoing reprint title also contains a Jack Kirby story (Tales To Astonish #26) and two Steve Ditko tales (Tales to Astonish #21 and Tales To Astonish #26). This is number 1 of 1 Where Monsters Dwell issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson, Kirby, Ditko or Where Monsters Dwell issues. See also this blog's Kirby checklist, Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.

  1. When I looked at this, the pencils looked like Marie Severin to me, and a quick googling showed why -- she did the original sketch for this cover:

    The guy's pose screams Marie!
