Secrets of Sinister House #8 - Alex Nino art


Secrets of Sinister House v1 #8, 1972 - Lunar-bound along with his crew mates, an astronaut fights his compulsion to turn into a werewolf. The sharp, angular drawings of Alex Nino lend a disturbing tone to the story. His inventive panel sequences are limited by the relatively short page count, but the thin verticals on page two (see interior page shown below) perfectly capture the liftoff with an efficiency of space. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Bill Draut and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Secrets of Sinister House issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Secrets of Sinister House issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
