House of Secrets #140 - Nestor Redondo art

House of Secrets v1 #140, 1976 - Introduced in Swamp Thing, the Patchwork Man gets a shot at his own issue. Captured and flown to New York, the creature becomes the experimental subject of a prominent scientist. Nestor Redondo does a decent job with the pencils, though most of the inks appear to be the work of studio assistants. During a retelling of the character's origin (pages 9-11), the artist intentionally swipes Bernie Wrightson panels from Swamp Thing #3. House of Secrets abruptly ends with this issue, leaving the story unresolved. Other artists in this issue include Ernie Chan (cover). This is number 10 of 10 House of Secrets issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or House of Secrets issues.
