Unexpected Special / DC Special Series #4 - Alex Nino art

Unexpected Special / DC Special Series #4, 1977 - All new material fills this double-sized special. The most noteworthy is Alex Nino's tale of a charlatan fortune teller whose predictions actually come true. The drawings are harsh, even unnerving, but seem appropriate to the horror genre. Nino's best moments are the highly textured opening splash and the crystal ball's final revelation on page 6. Other artists in this issue include Bill Payne, E.R. Cruz, Ernie Chua, Romeo Tanghal, Bob Smith, Fred Carrillo and Luis Domingez (cover). This is number 1 of 2 DC Special Series issues with Nino art and/or covers.
