Tales of Ghost Castle #2 - Alex Nino art

Tales of Ghost Castle v1 #2, 1975 - Alex Nino had many occasions to illustrate science fiction stories during the bronze age, including this magnificent example. His opening splash is skillfully composed, depicting a futuristic space traveler fending off aliens. The main figure has a purposely higher level of detail, creating a stronger focal point. The artist also efficiently uses negative space to fit in the two much smaller panels. Each page is masterfully designed and paced to tell the story with great clarity. This is number 1 of 1 Tales of Ghost Castle issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Tales of Ghost Castle issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
