Psycho #6 - Jeff Jones art

Psycho v1 #6, 1972 - Jeff Jones' subtle science fiction tale seems oddly out of place for this horror magazine series. And yet the art exemplifies the artist's typically graphic approach and his mastery of light and shade. Background details are sparse, putting the focus of attention on the clearly defined figure drawings. The final scene is a full page splash, beautifully emphasizing the change in scale from a simple spaceship to a wider planetary view. Other artists in this issue include Sean Tood, Ross Andru, Pat Boyette, Pablo Marcos and Vic Segrelles (cover). This is number 1 of 3 Psycho magazine issues with Jones art and/or covers.

  1. Looking at that Jeff Jones page, I can't imagine anybody making that kind of comic book imagery before he stepped into the scene. The simplicity and moodiness coupled with the naturalistic draughtsmanship make his work still relevant today, still so appealing; you almost forget that he was a groundbreaker.
