1984 #8 - Alex Nino art

1984 (magazine) v1 #8, 1978 - A lone man tries to lift his tribe up from its primitive and beastly ways, only to be shunned and cast out. The grand scale of Alex Nino's artwork is fully realized in his vast double-page spreads and full page splashes. Within these pages reside smaller, more intimate panels. This evolutionary tale is magnificently detailed in one of the artist's intricate styles. Nino's second tale tells of the last two men on Earth and three cryogenically frozen females. While superbly drawn, it's much less ambitious than his opening story. Other artists in this issue include Rudy Nebres, Frank Thorne and Richard Corben. This is number 8 of 10 1984 magazine issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or 1984 issues. See also this blog's Alex Nino checklist.
