Witching Hour #47 - Alex Nino art


Witching Hour v1 #47 - Concocting a way to bilk tourists, the owners of a dilapidated English castle hire an actor friend to play the resident "ghost". Alex Nino's eclectic style uses thin lines and brittle shapes to define the characters and settings. While appropriately eerie, some of the facial close-ups suffer from too much distortion. Overall though, Nino's drawings are quite effective, especially in the few silent panels (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Reuben Yandoc and John Calnan. This is number 4 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 Nino checklist.
