House of Secrets #90 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams
House of Secrets v1 #91, 1971 - Sentenced to a remote prison planet, an inmate's sole companion is the computer that attends to his needs. Rich Buckler borrows much of Neal Adams' style during this era, enough to make their collaboration an almost seamless effort. Where the penciling falls short, Adams compensates with skillful and precise inking. Shadows and highlighting effects are visually arresting throughout. Amusingly, the two artists insert themselves into the story (see interior page below, panel 5). As good as the story art is, Adams' space-themed horror cover is even better. Other artists in this issue include Bill Draut and George Tuska. This is number 8 of 9 House of Secrets issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or House of Secrets issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist and Top 10 Adams comics.
