Omega Men #21 - Alex Nino art & cover

Alex Nino
Omega Men v1 #21, 1984 - Alex Nino's organic yet distinctive style on this cover makes it a standout on the series. Visual elements occupy every available space within a seemingly organized chaos. Inside, the artist employs a variety of trapezoidal panels to generate movement and excitement (see interior page shown below). Every page and every spread is meticulously designed with arresting results. Carl Gafford further improves upon the art with his suggestively tropical color palettes. This issue is one of the decade's artistic masterpieces and easily among Nino's finest works. This is number 2 of 2 Omega Men issues with Nino art and/or covers.
