House of Mystery #212 - Alex Nino art

House of Mystery v1 #212, 1973 - This tale of murder and aliens at a kid's summer camp is one of Alex Nino's oddest works. His drawings are highly stylized, distorted, bordering on cartoonish. Still, despite the disturbing faces and expressions, the artist maintains a high level of detail in the backgrounds (see interior page above). Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Murphy Anderson and Mike Kaluta (cover). This is number 2 of 14 House of Mystery issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
