Psycho #9 - Jeff Jones art

Psycho v1 #9, 1972 - Set in the future, a detective of the ponders the suicide of a billionaire and of the infinite number of alternate universes. Jeff Jones does a stunning adaptation of a Larry Niven story. Drawn with heavy areas of black and white, there is a somber, serious tone throughout the pages. Key to this exceptional effort is Jones' splash page, a skillful distribution of light and dark, weight and airiness (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Pablo Marcos, Ramon Torrents, Villanova, Felipe Dela Rosa, Zesar Lopez, Juez Xirinius, Domingo (cover) and others. This is number 2 of 3 Psycho magazine issues with Jones art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Jones or Psycho issues. See also this blog's Jones checklist.
