The Rook #4 - Alex Toth art, non-attributed Nestor Redondo cover

Nestor Redondo
The Rook v1 #4, 1980 - Nestor Redondo does a fairly impressive job with one of the few (non-attributed) covers he did for Warren Publishing. Analogous greens and teals fill the scene, reinforcing the creature's underwater origins. Alex Toth concludes the adventures of Hollywood stunt pilot Jesse Bravo. Like the previous issue, Toth's high degree of craftsmanship is evident throughout. The story's 1930s-era setting is very convincing, especially the various aerial scenes. Other artists in this issue include Lee Elias and Alfredo Alcala. This is number 2 of 2 Rook issues with Toth art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 Rook issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth, Redondo or Rook issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist, Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
