Shield / Steel Sterling #3 - Alex Nino art


Shield / Steel Sterling v1 #3, 1983 - This series was among several produced by Red Circle/ Archie Comics, all revivals of the super-hero line introduced in the 1960s. When it comes to this genre, Alex Nino is not an artist that immediately comes to mind, and his past attempts have been mediocre at best. His title page is a continuation of events from the previous issue, but without the impact. Still, there are a few noteworthy moments. Many of Nino's layouts are experimental and daring. The sequence of varying backgrounds on page twelve and the Shield's final battle with Deathstar on page 16 are but two fine examples. Other artists this issue include Eduardo Barreto and Al Weiss (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Shield / Steel Sterling issues with Nino art and/or covers.
