Weird War Tales #23 - non-attributed Alex Nino art

Weird War Tales v1 #23, 1971 - On a remote island in the Pacific, a lone Army Corporal mans a radar station that sees little to no action. That rapidly changes when an inter-dimensional portal whisks him to another planet, engaging in a very different kind of war. Alien figures and landscapes are a specialty of Alex Nino's, and he makes splendid use of his talents here. His disturbingly irregular shapes are well suited for this sci-fi/war story, culminating in the massive destruction of alien weaponry on page six, panel one. Other artists in this issue include Alfredo Alcala, Luis Domingez (cover), and Rich Buckler. This is number 5 of 13 Weird War Tales issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Weird War Tales issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
