1984 #5 - Alex Nino, Wally Wood art


1984 (magazine) v1 #5, 1978 - Alex Nino's textural drawings create an inter-dimensional world that engulfs a lone rider from the frontier era. Though well drawn, it lacks some of the inventiveness of his previous work on this series. Wally Wood helps illustrate a tale of a man suspicious of his wife's infidelity. Rife with nudity, the theme could have benefited from more subtlety. Still, Wood's inks add the intended effects beautifully (see interior page above). Other artists in this issue Rudy Nebres, Mike Nassar, Alfredo Alcala, Herb Arnold, Abel Laxamana, Jose Ortiz, Esteban Maroto and Patrick Woodroffe (cover). This is number 5 of 10 1984 magazine issues with Nino art and/or covers and 3 of 3 1984 magazine issues with Wood art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wood, Nino or 1984 issues.
