House of Mystery #283 - Alex Nino art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
House of Mystery v1 #283, 1978 - A scientist returns from a remote island with his native bride, only to suspect her of poisoning him. Alex Nino's layouts are exceptional, coupled with his raw drawing style. The large borderless panel on page one makes the living room setting more spacious and open. Nino's monsters are among the most grotesque in DC horror comics, including his rendition of a man's transformation into an insect. This is his last story for House of Mystery and among his most memorable. By comparison, Joe Kubert's related cover is merely adequate. This is number 14 of 14 House of Mystery issues with Nino art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Nino, Kubert or House of Mystery issues.
