1984 #7 - Alex Nino art


1984 (magazine) v1 #7, 1978 - In the first of two tales by Alex Nino, airports are replaced by mass teleportation centers, becoming the common mode of passenger transport. All goes smoothly until one madman sneaks in an explosive device. The artist does remarkable depictions of advanced technology, machinery and architecture. His linework forms impressive patterns and perspectives, while panels float atop additional background scenes. Nino is even better on his second story, about a futuristic war between the sexes. His layouts and sequencing are refreshing and innovative, sometimes combining multiple viewpoints within a single montage. With these examples, Nino shows a growing confidence and ease with the science fiction genre. Both stories were later reprinted in 1994 #23. In addition, Richard Corben  provides the issue's only full color story. Other artists include Rudy Nebres and Frank Thorne. This is number 7 of 10 1984 magazine issues with Nino art and/or covers.
