Bernie Wrightson has passed away at the age of 68, following a battle with brain cancer. May he rest in peace. His work looked familiar to me; I eventually realized that he did the illustration/concept design for the original Ghostbusters (1984). It was featured in the book Making Ghostbusters.

And if anyone out there desires to get a look at Making Ghostbusters, and can’t locate a physical copy, (it tends to be rare, or ridiculously expensive) you can download a pdf copy over at Spook Central. It’s the third book featured on the page—right click and download the full book pdf.

After a quick perusal of his Wikipedia page, I see that I’ve also seen his work in Batman: The Cult, Batman/Aliens, and Heroes For Hope: Starring The X-Men #1 (he worked on three pages). I never knew about his comic book adaptation of Frankenstein until now.
