Witching Hour #31 - Alex Nino art


Witching Hour v1 #31, 1973 - A fiendish boy finds a book on black magic in this odd Alex Nino story. The art is deftly laid out and deliberately paced. His opening splash is a masterful composition, introducing the characters within an bedroom setting (see interior page below). Looking ordinary at first, the hollowed-out skull, voodoo dolls and book of black magic suggest the trouble to come. Other artists in this issue include John Calnan, Buddy Grenale, Art Saaf and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 1 of 4 Witching Hour issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Witching Hour issues. See also this blog's Alex Nino checklist.
