Mike Ploog! and Werewolf by Night
Watched Ralph Bakshi‘s Wizards last night, in anticipation of the 35th anniversary DVD/Blu-Ray re-release tomorrow (March 13). The last time I saw the 1977 animated feature was probably the only time, in theatres around the time of its release.
One thing I discovered on watching it again was the awesome art by Ian Miller and Mike Ploog; Miller did backgrounds and Ploog did interstitial art that set up and helped tell the story.
It was good to be reminded of Ploog, who was one of the best of Marvel’s stable of ’70s artists. Check out this cover from Werewolf By Night (and what a title!).
