Ghosts #35 - Alex Nino art

Ghosts v1 #35, 1975 - Illegally smuggling immigrants to America, a greedy sea captain murders his own first mate in the process. Drawn in a brittle, almost expressionistic style, Alex Nino's drawings seem sloppy and poorly executed. The last few pages fare better than the rest (see interior page below), capturing the disturbingly eerie finale to the story. Other artists in this issue include Buddy Grenale, Franco Reyes and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Ghosts issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Ghosts issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.

  1. Adams inks, on the female on the cover?
