Witching Hour #45 - Alex Nino art


Witching Hour v1 #45, 1974 - Haunted by his promise to his dead fiancee, a bachelor embarks on a long sea voyage as a crewman. Excruciatingly detailed, Alex Nino's work suggests the antiquity of the setting. His lines are spindly and unkempt, yet texturally rich. The title page, depicting the public hanging of a murderess, excels due to its strong vertical panels (emphasizing the gallows' height) and fine draftsmanship. Other artists in this issue include Jerry Grandenetti, E. R. Cruz and Nick Cardy (cover). This is number 3 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.
