1984 #4 - Alex Nino art


1984 (magazine) v1 #4, 1978 - Alex Nino illustrates a distant future where women are sacrificed to an unseen beatnik god. The artist employs an unusual and little used format, drawing the story vertically rather than horizontally. Additionally, he imposes a six and seven panel vertical grid on every page that extends an illusion of height. He varies the readers' points of view and carefully distributes black and white areas into graphic patterns. His weakest page is the opener, laden with too much text. Other artists in this issue include Richard Corben, Jose Oritz, Estaban Maroto, Jim Janes, Rudy Nebres, Jose Gonzales, Abel Laxamana, Herb Arnold and Patirck Woodruff (cover). This is number 4 of 10 1984 magazine issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or 1984 issues. See also this blog's Nino checklist.
