    Sadly, more health problems for Bernie. He's got a brain tumor and will soon be undergoing surgery again.

    Wrightson's work played such a massive role in my love of comics that I don't even know how to put it into words. He has been, for the better part of the last three decades, my absolute favorite artist of all time. I really hope he pulls through, not just so we can get more work from him, but because he's a genuinely nice guy.

    Bernie was the greatest. Wishing him the very best.

    My all-time favorite Bernie panel:



    Does it get any better than that?

    Wrightson's got a Kickstarter campaign going for a Cycle Of The Werewolf portfolio.

    Neat.

    I love when people do Kickstarters and get way more than they need.

    From his FB page:

    "Dear Fans and Friends,

    I apologize for our silence for the past few months. Last November Bernie began falling again, and having obvious problems with perception. He had to undergo yet another brain surgery to relieve bleeding, and then spend several weeks undergoing in-patient rehabilitation. Unfortunately, it appears that he has lasting damage: he has extremely limited function on his left side, and is unable to walk or reliably use his left hand, among other limitations.

    We have had to come to the sad conclusion that he is now effectively retired: he will produce no new art, and he is unable to attend conventions. Should this situation change I will happily announce it here.

    He can still sign his name (in fact he was signing Kickstarter prints in the hospital!), and is otherwise pretty healthy and has good cognition. We expect to continue releasing signed prints, and offering occasional pieces of art for sale from the collection that remains. We both thank all of you for your continuing support and good wishes!

    All our best,
    Liz and Bernie Wrightson"
