House of Mystery #253 - Neal Adams cover, Alex Nino art

Neal Adams
House of Mystery v1 #253, 1977 - A light emanates from a baby's face as his babysitter recoils in horror. Neal Adams' cover cleverly lets the reader imagine the demon baby's appearance rather than his own interpretation. Alex Nino's story of the same name only faintly resembles the characters, but his artwork is no less compelling. Especially clever is the opening panel's depiction of the sitter's arrival. Nino curves and distorts the perspective for a unnerving effect. Other artists in this issue include Jack Abel, Tony Dezuniga, Klaus Janson, Romeo Tanghal, Bill Draut, Bob Smith and Gil Kane. This is number 25 of 26 House of Mystery issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 10 of 14 House of Mystery issues with Nino art and/or covers.
