Vampirella #76 - Alex Nino art


Vampirella v1 #76, 1979 - Alex Nino continues his experimental layouts and pacing on "Time for a Change", a futuristic tale of alien infestation. The five pages are technically splash pages, each is rendered in exquisitely complex graphic textures.Each is completely devoid of any panel borders, allowing one scene to flow to the next in a innovative meandering pattern. The dialogue of the space travelers, in the form of word balloons, form paths for the reader to follow (though not without difficulty). Nino often pushed artistic boundaries within his magazine work, freed from the restrictions of his more well known horror comics for DC. This is number 4 of 5 Vampirella issues with Nino art and/or cover.
