House of Secrets #126 - Alex Nino art


House of Secrets v1 #126, 1974 - A murderous thief steals a curious watch that enables him to travel through time. Alex Nino's art is almost too intricate, but the effect suggests a seediness appropriate to the story. A high point of his work is the large title panel (see interior page below). Nino cleverly uses shadows to create a tightly confined space, perhaps suggesting a metaphorical "trap". Other artists in this issue include Luis Dominguez, Quico Redondo, Lee Marrs and Ernie Chan. This is number 7 of 11 House of Secrets issues with Nino art and/or covers.
