House of Mystery #224 - Alex Nino art, Neal Adams, Bernie Wrightson reprints

House of Mystery v1 #224, 1974 - The first 100 page super spectacular on this mystery title, this issue contains both new material and reprints. Alex Nino chronicles a slew of murders during World War II that show signs of a werewolf. His renderings become harsher as the story progresses. Some faces are even distorted to the point of discomfort (page 7 panel 6). Still, Nino's work is distinctive and seems to suit the horror genre. Reprints include art by Neal Adams (House of Secrets #85) and Bernie Wrightson (Spectre #9). Other artists include Gerry Talaoc, Frank Robbins and Alfredo Alcala. This is number 5 of 14 House of Mystery issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist, Top 10 Adams comics, Nino checklist, Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
