Nightmare v2 #10 - Joe Kubert cover, Alex Toth reprint

Joe Kubert
Nightmare v2 #10, 1954 - The devil is drawn to an artisan mask-maker on this creepy Joe Kubert cover. A subtle tilt of the the lamp on the left helps lead the reader's eye to the central character. Amidst the grotesque faces, Kubert inserts a classical female statuette, perhaps to heighten the contrast. This issue also contains an Alex Toth reprint from Weird Thrillers #2. Other artists in this issue include E.R. Kinstler, Murphy Anderson and Gene Colan. This is number 1 of 2 Nightmare issues with Kubert art and/or covers.
