Sure is,he did a great job on the book he should do more of the illustrations on kings books,well the ones with illustrations in them,or maybe some covers even.

Bernie Wrightson’s art is legendary. Known in the comic book universe as the co-creator of hugely popular creatures like DC’s Swamp Thing and for the work he did for Warren Publishing, Wrightson helped to revamp horror comics in the 1970s. In 1975, Wrightson formed the New York City artists’ loft commune that came to be known as The Studio. He shared this space with fellow creatives Barry Windsor-Smith, Jeff Jones, and Michael William Kaluta. Wrightson illustrated the comic book adaptation ofCreepshow. This led to several other collaborations with Stephen King, including illustrations for the novella Cycle of the Werewolf, The Stand, and Wolves of the Calla.


...I have heard, that perhaps his health is not the best at present.....

I found 'Cyle of the Werewolf' at a local used book store, illustrations and all. While it obviously deviated from his more well-known stuff, I thought it was a fun, straightforward werewolf horror story. I enjoyed it, appreciating how the story was constructed of separate but connected smaller stories that came together at the end. I'd say it was a bit gruesome, but then again, after reading Misery, I have a brand new appreciation for the depths that SK will go to capture a moment.
