Marvel Classics Comics #2 / The Time Machine - Alex Nino art

Marvel Classics Comics v1 #2, 1976 - I had always thought that Alex Nino's style was well suited for the science fiction genre. This adaptation of the H. G. Wells classic only reinforces my opinion. One of this lengthiest tales, this splendid Nino effort is actually a reprint of the Pendulum Classics paperback (originally printed in black and white). This larger format bolsters his unique futuristic drawings. In addition to two artfully drawn splash pages, the artist also completes a spectacular spread (pages 36-37) of the hero amidst an army of Morlocks. Other artists in this issue include Gil Kane (cover). Compare this issue to the earlier Alex Toth version in Four Color Comics v2 #1085. This is number 1 of 3 Marvel Classics Comics issues with Nino art and/or covers.
