Adventure Comics #426 - Alex Nino art

Adventure Comics v1 #426, 1973 - One of three features, the indian pirate Captain Fear saves a woman from a sacrificial cult. Alex Nino's textured drawings reside within carefully constructed layouts. Certain panels seem to benefit from his rough-edged style, in particular the background foliage on the bottom of page 3. Nino certainly stands out from the issue's more conventional stories (Vigilante and the Adventurer's Club). Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky, Dick Giordano and Jim Aparo. This is number 2 of 6 Adventure issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Adventure Comics issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
