I just re-acquired this beautiful Swampy origin page by my favorite artist, the late Berni Wrightson. I originally bought this back in 2006, then sold it for some needed funds in 2012. But now it's back home to stay! I wasn't going to post it, but as a tribute to Berni, here it is. God Speed Berni.

It was fate that it came back to you - and just before Bernie's untimely passing. Thank you for sharing it as a tribute to a great artist and a great man.

A telling page at a very sad time for those of us who so very much appreciated his wonderful artistic skills and superb draughtsmanship. A lovely page for you to regain; a real treasure.

It was a tragic weekend indeed, but those last three panels in this page reflect a life that achieved the pinnacle. Rest in peace, Bernie.

To Bernie! Look on his Works, ye Mighty, and smile like an eight-year-old reading a horror comic under his bed covers via flashlight while hoping your parents don't notice! And cheers to once again being the custodian of this fine origin page.
