Fury of Firestorm #31 - non-attributed Alex Nino art


Fury of Firestorm v1 #31, 1984 - The only collaboration between George Tuska and Alex Nino (that I'm aware of) is fraught with stylistic incompatibilities. Nino's hand is most evident on the large panel on page three (see interior page shown below) as the textural quality of his inks enhance an underground setting. Otherwise, the artist adds little improvement over Tuska's domineering pencils. Other artists in this issue include Rafael Kayanan and Pat Broderick (cover artists). This is number 1 of 2 Fury of Firestorm issues with Nino art and/or covers.

  1. I'm confused about why you call this "non-attributed." I don't have the issue in question...were there no credits on the story? Both Tuska and Nino are identified on the cover. Or am I misunderstanding what you mean by "non-attributed"?

    Anyway, I greatly enjoy your posts pointing out nice art jobs, many of which I missed.

  2. I try to use "mis-credited" and "non-credited" to refer to the names printed in the issue, whether on the cover or within the story. "Non-attributed" and "mis-attributed" refer directly to inaccuracies in comic guides, primarily the widely accepted Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide.
