Alien Worlds #9 - non-attributed Frank Brunner art

Alien Worlds v1 #9, 1985 - In addition to the flowing brushstrokes he was well known for, Frank Brunner experiments with stippling effects in this tale of a mysterious tarot reader. The resulting variety of patterns and textures are fascinating. Visually, the drawings perfectly enhance the story's magical plot and theme. I only wish he would have pursued this approach and further developed its evolution. Other artists in this issue include Mike Hoffman, Bo Hampton and John Bolton (cover). This is number 2 of 2 Alien Worlds issues with Brunner art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Brunner or Alien Worlds issues. See also this blog's Brunner checklist or Top 10 Brunner comics.

  1. Hey! Great Blog! Glad I came across it. Was curious if you knew if ALIEN WORLDS is currently public domain??

  2. Not sure. Seems like it would be too recent to qualify.
