Vampirella #67 - Alex Nino art

Vampirella v1 #67, 1978 - Mankind establishes an underwater civilization on a distant planet, only to find frequent sea-quakes impeding their progress. Alex Nino's "Fish Bait" is one of his most ambitious works. In only eight pages, the artist uses three panoramic spreads interspersed with smaller panels. These scenes comprise of multi-layered drawings in differing shades of gray. The opening spread displays a futuristic underwater city. Although a tad chaotic, the progression from one panel to the next is manageable. Nino's last page is a full page splash, illustrated in horrific style worthy of the genre. This is number 3 of 5 Vampirella issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Vampirella issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
