Vampirella #59 - Alex Nino art


Vampirella v1 #59, 1977 - In this back-up tale, a space age family settles on an alien planet, only to become threatened by its monstrous inhabitants. Carmine Infantino, famed silver age Flash artist, illustrates one of many tales he did for Warren Publishing. Alex Nino provides the inks, eventually dominating the pencils. While the layouts are clearly Infantino, Nino's rich textural approach gives the story added dimension and panache. Each page is meticulously rendered and the artist's style is most evident on the final two pages (especially the last panel on page 53). Other artists in this issue include Leopold Sanchez, Martin Salvador, Leo Duranona and Jose Ortiz. This is number 1 of 5 Vampirella issues with Nino art and/or covers.
