Weird Mystery Tales #16 - Alex Nino art

Weird Mystery Tales v1 #16, 1975 - Due to a local bumpkin's hoax, neighborhood kids become frightened of a farmer's scarecrow. Alex Nino's coarse artistic style has a unnerving quality all on its own. His erratic line sometimes leads to distorted faces on certain characters, but is well-suited for the mystery genre. His bold vertical panels on the opening page are surpassed only by the horrific, but exquisitely drawn ending. Other artists in this issue include Frank Robbins and Luis Domingez (cover). This is number 5 of 6 Weird Mystery Tales issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Weird Mystery Tales issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
