Swamp Thing and Spider-Man



I was glad to use the art of Bernie Wrightson and Frank Cho for this cover. Interestingly enough, the Spider-Man here is by Wrightson and the Swamp Thing is by Cho, instead of the other way around - which I what I would usually expect with these two artists.  That speaks to the strength of these illustrators, that they can transistion between genres.  They can go from horror to funny animals to superheroes and  maintain a high standard of quality with each style.

This looks like Spidey out of his element (tall city towers), which reminds me of his earliest team-up with Doctor Strange. I'd read it.

Frank Frazetta was like that. People who only know him for his widely reproduced barbarian paintings have a hard time believing that he subbed on Li'l Abner in the newspapers for a while and did western stories for comics. Neal Adams did some work on DC's Adventures of Jerry Lewis. And Fran├žoise Mouly, who launched RAW with Art Spiegelman and has been the Art Editor at the New Yorker for decades, was the colorist on Tomb of Dracula in the late 70's.
