House of Secrets #95 - Nestor Redondo art


House of Secrets v1 #95, 1972 - Nearing the end of his years, a soldier in the Spanish Inquisition will do anything for newfound youth and the hand of a beautiful woman. Nestor Redondo's large opening panel displays a medieval torture chamber in all its horrific glory. His illustrations throughout are exquisite. Even the small panels show an uncommon complexity and beauty. Redondo's first effort on the series is also one of his best. Nick Cardy's related cover is splendid in its own right. Other artists in this issue include Bernard Baily, Don Heck and Jack Sparling. This is number 1 of 10 House of Secrets issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or House of Secrets issues. See also this blog's Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
