Marvel Classics Comics #8 / Moby Dick - Alex Nino art


Marvel Classics Comics v1 #8, 1976 - Herman Melville’s novel is newly interpreted in this bronze age Marvel series. Like previous issues, this Pendulum Classic reprint is shown in color for the first time. Narration and dialogue occupy much of the panels, but Alex Nino’s drawings more than compensate for it. The artist’s rich, textural lines permeate each panel, especially his renditions of sea and storms (pages 17, 26 and 40). The entire issue is a showcase of Nino’s unique talents. Other artists in this issue include Pablo Marcos (cover). This is number 2 of 3 Marvel Classics Comics issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or Marvel Classics Comics issues. See also this blog's Alex Nino checklist.
