Secrets of Sinister House #10 - Neal Adams art

Secrets of Sinister House v1 #10, 1973 - The mysterious secret behind a magician's success draws the curiosity of a hunchback laborer. Only vaguely referencing the Victor Hugo novel, the story greatly benefits from the inks of Neal Adams. Despite the weakness of the layouts, the pencils are enhanced with masterful shading and clear delineation. The characters are more dimensional and interesting, especially in Adams' careful rendition of the hunchback on page 2 (see interior page shown below). The cover design is an enlarged, slightly modified version of an interior panel. Other artists in this issue include Gerry Talaoc and Alfredo Alcala (art and cover). This is number 1 of 1 Secrets of Sinister House issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Secrets of Sinister House issues.
