Monsters & Heroes: Bernie Wrightson Profile

Larry Ivie's Monsters and Heroes was a magazine devoted to monster movies, old movie and radio serials, and comics. It ran for seven issues from 1967 to 1970.

Issue #3 (March 1968) featured a write-up on Bernie Wrightson. This is probably one of the earliest things written about Bernie in the fan or professional press. There was an interview and a short article published on Wrightson in early issues of Infinity and I'll Be Damned, but those did not appear until 1970. This issue also featured two early drawings by Bernie that to my knowledge have not been printed anywhere else.
