House of Mystery #245 - Alex Nino art

House of Mystery v1 #245, 1976 - A reclusive old woman is accused of witchcraft by her rural community. Meanwhile, her son's purchase from a demonic catalogue may be more than he bargained for. A fairly typical bronze age effort by Alex Nino, his use of elongated panels and graphic shapes is prevalent. The last page is a full page splash, a rarity among his DC works. Without spoiling the ending, I'll just say the final scene is a nightmarish vision worthy of H.P. Lovecraft. Other artists in this issue include Leo Duranova. This is number 7 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 Nino checklist.
