House of Secrets #116 - Nestor Redondo art

House of Secrets v1 #116, 1974 - After bargaining with the devil, a pauper-turned-merchant tries to his own soul by offering up his own adult son. Nestor Redondo's story of betrayal is drawn with exemplary detail, portraying the medieval setting and characters with great care. A celebratory tavern scene (see interior page below) directly contrasts the darker elements of this superbly rendered tale. Other artists in this issue include Ramona Fradon and Luis Dominguez (cover). This is number 6 of 10 House of Secrets issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or House of Secrets issues. See also this blog's Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
