House of Secrets #113 - Nestor Redondo art

House of Secrets v1 #113, 1973 - Unknown to the town of Sweetwater, a family of orphaned children preys upon the residents at night, draining them of their blood. Nestor Redondo gives the young vampires angelic faces, making them even more disturbing. Each panel is delicately drawn, despite the horrific theme. The most breathtaking scenes are when the children's boat capsizes, putting them in deep slumber under the lake (see interior page below). Redondo nicely captures both their perceived innocence and sinister nature. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky, Sergio Aragaones, Jack Sparling and Nick Cardy. This is number 5 of 10 House of Secrets issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or House of Secrets issues.
