House of Secrets #91 - Wally Wood art, Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams
House of Secrets v1 #91, 1971 - A brutal South American dictator quashes a rebellion and orders the execution of their leader "El Aguila". Jerry Grandenetti's adequate drawings appear more polished by Wally Wood's bold inking. Deft placement of shadows and highlights suggest the oppressive mood of the story's setting. Neal Adams does even better with his interpretation of the same theme. The cover's transparent masthead allows his illustration to have a greater sense of scale and space. Other artists in this issue include Jack Sparling, Sam Glanzman and Murphy Anderson. This is number 9 of 9 House of Secrets issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 1 of 2 House of Secrets issues with Wood art and/or covers.
