Alex Nino biography



Alex Nino (1940-) - After initially studying medicine in his native Philippines, he pursued a career in comics in earnest during the 1960s. He gained both experience and notoriety in his home country before being recruited by DC Comics. His first American story was published in House of Mystery #204. During the 1970s, he was a prominent contributor to DC's horror comics, including Weird War Tales, House of Mystery and House of Secrets. His most ambitious work appeared later in Warren's science fiction magazines 1984 and 1994. Nino's artwork was sharp-edged and sometimes harsh, but at the same time hypnotic and compelling. Like Bernie Wrightson, he emphasized shapes in his renditions rather than lines. Later works would display page designs of stunning complexity. For some, his illustrations are an acquired taste, but his vision and style are unflinchingly unique. Read more on Wikipedia.
