Thriller #12 - non-attributed Alex Nino art & cover

Alex Nino

Thriller v1 #12, 1984 - The final issue of this series ends with a whimper, not a bang, concluding the complex storyline. Alex Nino's drawings lack the boldness of previous issues, but remain faithfully consistent. More dialogue- and character- driven, the art is efficiently laid out and paced. Highlights include the impressive war room on the opening splash, the following two page spread of a desolate landscape, and the optimistic final page. A tad less impressive is Nino's atypically confusing cover. This is number 4 of 4 Thriller issues with Nino art and/or covers.
