Vampirella #85 - Alex Nino art


Vampirella v1 #85, 1980 - For much of his work for Warren, Alex Nino often employed panoramic spreads inset with smaller panels. This story of a heavenly angel's attempt to rehabilitate a murdering hunchback is no exception. The sequencing takes some additional effort, especially when panels toggle back and forth from two settings. The page designs themselves are breathtaking, including Nino's interpretations of heaven and hell. The first page is the strongest aesthetically, as the artist blends together multiple scenes. Although devoid of borders, it maintains clarity while quickening the pace. This is number 5 of 5 Vampirella issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Vampirella issues.
