The Unexpected #162 - non-attributed Nestor Redondo, Alex Nino art, Jack Kirby reprint

The Unexpected v1 #122, 1975 - Like many DC 100 page super-spectaculars of the 1970s, this issue boasted both new and reprinted material. Nestor Redondo's contents page opens the issue with exquisite detail, depicting a pair of late night grave robbers. Equally stunning is Alex Nino's story of a slew of Satanic murders and the fortune teller who foresees them. His pacing and layout are masterful, beginning with the ornately eerie opening scene. Some comic book guides fail to credit both artists in this issue. With the exception of a Jack Kirby tale from House of Mystery #72, most of the reprints are underwhelming. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Pat Boyette, Bill Draut and Abe Ocampo. Cover by Nick Cardy. This is number 3 of 7 Unexpected issues with Redondo art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Unexpected issues with Nino art and/or covers.
