house of secrets 109...

Another issue of "House of Secrets" here, issue 109 from 1973.  Behind a cover by Nick Cardy are the stories "Museum of Nightmares," writte by Michael Pellowsky and Maxene Fabe with art from Alfredo Alcala, and "And in Death There is No Escape," written by John Albano, with Art by Alex Nino.  Nino, like Alcala, was from the Philippines.  Both were recruited by Joe Orlando and Carmine Infantino to work at DC in the early 1970s.  He had a languid, yet fine-lined psychedelic style that served him well later in his career, drawring for Warren magazines and "Heavy Metal."  He also did some animation work.  Cardy was one of DC's top cover artists (he also drew "Teen Titans" for a while) and later did movie posters...





Ok, I'm off to Brooklyn (twice in a year? gadzooks!) to help a friend put something together for some kind of make-a-movie-in-24-hours contest.  This should be pretty interesting, or totally not interesting at all, but I'm going out there to help.  Stay spooky...
