Weird Mystery Tales #6 - Alex Nino art


Weird Mystery Tales v1 #6, 1973 - In a rural mountain community, fear and suspicion lead to the murder of an old woman. This tale of witchcraft and revenge is drawn a bit too harshly for my tastes. The hillbillies are more caricatures than characters, rendered in messy, even coarse linework. Some of Nino's best work appears in horror titles, but this one falls short. Other artists in this issue include Abe Ocampo, Ruben Yandoc and Jack Sparling (cover). This is number 2 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.
