Another member of the mythical "Studio" has left us. He was very ill at the end of his life and I can't help but feel relief that his suffering has ended. He left us with some of the most glorious inked images ever done. Of course, Frankenstein was his masterpiece but there was no shortage of his brilliant work, mostly in the comic book realm. Along with his vast amount of horror output he also did some humorous work as well as inking my favorite tale of The Shadow, "The Kingdom of The Cobra". Along with Al Williamson and Jeff Jones, Bernie influenced my inking to probably the greatest degree. Goodbye, Bernie. Say hi to Jeff for all of us.
