House of Secrets #85 - Neal Adams art & cover

Neal Adams
House of Secrets v1 #85, 1970 - In a sorcerous tale from the Middle Ages, a heroic peasant faces two choices: taking up his sword against an evil wizard or asking a good wizard to fight in his behalf. Gil Kane's pencils are made more exceptional by Neal Adams' masterful inking. His additional highlights and shadows increase both drama and excitement. Already powerful figure drawings have greater volume and depth. Adams' cover is unrelated to the story, using a common theme of children and monsters. Other artists in this issue include Ralph Reese, Don Heck and Bill Draut. This is number 4 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.
