Panel Borders: Gods and Monsters by Bernie Wrightson and Rebekah Isaacs
Concluding our month of shows about iconoclastic American comic book artists, Alex Fitch talks to a master of horror comics, Bernie Wrightson, and a relative newcomer, Rebekah Isaacs who has made a name for herself in deftly rendered comics in a variety of genres. Alex talks to Bernie about his work on Swamp Thing and Warren Comics’ horror titles in the 1970s, on collaborating with Stephen King and George A. Romero in the 1980 and 90s and more recently working with Steve Niles at IDW on projects such as Dead, She Said, Doc Macabre, The Ghoul and their forthcoming collaboration Frankenstein Alive, alive. Alex and Rebekah chat about her career so far, working on superhero comics like DV8 with Brian Wood, her creator owner project Magus and the horror titles that have made her name, The Twilight Zone and the ongoing Angel and Faith.
