House of Secrets #102 - Nestor Redondo art


House of Secrets v1 #102, 1972 - When a lonely building superintendent reveals his hidden cash, a thieving couple conspire to take it from him. Nestor Redondo turns in an admirable effort on this tale of attraction and deception. The artist deliberately combines the girl with the hunchbacked super in many panels, contrasting beauty against grotesqueness. His terrific drawings are supplemented by small details, including the hunchback subtlely listening in on a background conversation (page 2 panel 3). In addition to Redondo's fine work, the issue is packaged in an eerie Michael Kaluta cover. Other artists in this issue include E. R. Cruz, Quico Redondo and Abe Ocampo. This is number 3 of 10 House of Secrets issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or House of Secrets issues.
