Other Plates?

Alex Nino fans: Do you have any scans or links of other plates from portfolios that you can share?

There was a Niño-illustrated story at Grantbridge Street and to-day there is one at Pappy's Golden Age Comics Blogzine.

I'm not a Niño fan myself, especially after he did a take-the-money-and-run job in an adaptation of a story by my father.

I'd be interested in hearing about that.

Not much to be said. One of my father's short stories was adapted to a graphic novel, published in the form of a “mass market” paperback. Niño did the cover and interior illustrations. The cover is perfectly fine; the interior illustrations are slap-dash and get increasingly crude as the story progresses. I very much doubt that the thing will ever be reprinted, though the original stories sold and continue to sell well.
