Adventure Comics #429 - Alex Nino art

Adventure Comics v1 #429 featuring Black Orchid, 1973 - After her premiere in the previous issue, the Black Orchid continues as the main feature on this title. Alex Nino's Captain Fear also continues, with the indian finding himself once again captured by pirates. Several panels shows wide open vistas with minimal dialogue, allowing readers to soak in the Caribbean setting. Most impressive are Nino's scenes of a tropical storm at sea, drawn in sumptuous shapes and textures (pages 5-6). Other artists in this issue include Tony DeZuniga. This is number 4 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.

  1. I DON'T know what it is, but I always found something very sensual about how she was depicted in these issues..., I had this one as a kid.

    Very lithe, yet very sexy.
