Marvel Premiere #38 / Weirdworld - Mike Ploog / Alex Nino art

Marvel Premiere v1 #38 featuring Weirdworld, 1977 - Two talented artists come together to produce this fantasy tale, whose elvish characters make their only regular-sized comic book appearance. Mike Ploog provides the wonderfully eerie pencils and Alex Nino inks the pages with a sumptuous textural quality. One of the most notable scenes is when an evil wizard creates minions by spitting out candle wax. It's a humorously magical panel yet beautifully drawn as well. Surprisingly, Ploog and Nino mesh together seamlessly without sacrificing the expression of either artist. Other artists in this issue include Rudy Nebres (cover). This is number 4 of 4 Marvel Premiere issues with Ploog art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Marvel Premiere issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Ploog, Nino or Marvel Premiere issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist, Ploog checklist or Top 10 Ploog comics.
