Power Man #42 - Alex Nino art


Luke Cage, Power& Man v1 #42, 1977 - Hired to protect a gold shipment, Luke Cage now stands accused of its robbery. Lee Elias' newspaper-strip style doesn't quite work on this super-hero title. Alex Nino's inking typically dominates, and usually to the benefit of the artwork. Nino's hand is evident on some panels more than others, but generally ineffective. This is compounded by the fact that the two artistic approaches seem less than compatible. Other artists in this issue include Ron Wilson (cover). This is number 1 of 2 Power Man issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Power Man issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.

  1. I'd completely forgotten that Nino did the inks on this issue. didn't he do some inks for Jim Starlin, too? in one of the Marvel black & white mags? or did I dream it?

    anyways, this is a great little site you got here, man. will definately be checking back in again. keep up the good work.

  2. Thanks for your comments. Nino did indeed ink Starlin in Rampaging Hulk #4 (already posted). I believe this is their only team-up and I wish they had done more. Also check out Marvel Premiere #38 (also posted) by Mike Ploog & Nino for another equally superb effort.
