Tales of Ghost Castle #1 - Nestor Redondo art


Tales of Ghost Castle v1 #1, 1975 - Nestor Redondo's work for DC horror books began to wane by the mid 1970s, as evidenced by this issue. His opening pages introduce Lucien, a librarian and keeper of stories that would reappear decades later in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. Though Redondo' s contribution is small, his drawings are exemplary. The first page's exterior of a medieval castle is beautifully textured, surpassing the artwork in the rest of the book. Other artists in this issue include Buddy Grenale, Quico Redondo, Rubeny, Sergio Aragones (single gag page) and Ernie Chua/Chan (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Tales of Ghost Castle issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Tales of Ghost Castle issues.
