House of Secrets #103 - Bernie Wrightson cover, Alex Nino art

Bernie Wrightson
House of Secrets v1 #103, 1972 - In a post-nuclear world, a young man seeks to find others like himself, untainted by the radiation that turned others into deformities. The sharp, jagged illustrations of Alex Nino create a painfully desolate future. His layouts and sequences are perfectly composed, offsetting some of the more unnerving imagery. On Bernie Wrightson's cover, the series host is illuminated by an extinguishing candle. The minimal color palette heightens shape and contrast, resulting in a masterful portrait. Other artists in this issue include Rico Rival, Jack Sparling and Sergio Aragon├ęs . This is number 2 of 11 House of Secrets issues with Nino art and/or covers and number 8 of 11 House of Secrets issues with Wrightson art and/or covers.
