Fury of Firestorm #37 - Alex Nino art


Fury of Firestorm v1 #37, 1985 - When a story reverts to a long flashback, such as this case, it usually means reprinted or older, unpublished material. Alex Nino rarely illustrated superhero books, and this is his first and only Firestorm story. Despite ample length and two full page splashes, the artwork mostly disappoints. Little or no shading flattens the picture plane, and his use of cross-hatching is sloppy at best. His penciled figures and faces lack the precision and confidence of earlier works, particularly during the bronze age. This is number 2 of 2 Fury of Firestorm issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Fury of Firestorm issues. See also this blog's Alex Nino checklist.
