A truly sad day and, for any horror/comic art fan over 50, a sobering double-expresso shot of our own mortality. Just found this out and I'm still too shocked to comment much. So I've collated a small portfolio of Bernie's great and sure to be timeless artwork to speak for me. Rest in peace, maestro!
