Addicted to Alex Nino: "From Beyond the Grave!" by Darland and Nino

Not gonna lay a big rap on ya today, Groove-ophiles. Just gonna point ya at this creepy classic written by Marjorie K. Darland (her only comicbook story, as far as I can learn) from House of Mystery #252 (February 1977). Our man Alex Nino's art is especially outstanding on this tale..."From Beyond the Grave!"


  1. Thank you,Mr Groove!
    This is a fine little tale.
    I enjoyed it much.Thank's for sharing.
    /Mr Anonymous
    p.s.I am too a Mr Nino-addict.
    Is there a way to break the habit?
    Is there a reason to?It feels so good.
    Am I a lost cause?

  2. thanks again for all the nino comics......more please. :)

  3. Lots more Alex Nino in the pipeline, Andy, never fear! With all the work he did for DC and Warren, there's plenty to choose from--I just don't want us to O.D.!

    And Mr. A, there's no reason to even want to break the Nino habit. It's a GOOD habit!

  4. You sure that's from HOM, and not WEIRD MYSTERY TALES? That's Destiny (drawn by Berni Wrightson in the splash page of WEIRD MYSTERY TALES #1, and reused here) as the host of the story.


    1. Yup. This story is from the Dollar Comics era of HOM. DC burned off inventory from their cancelled mystery series, kinda folding them into HOM. Disconcerting, but cool, huh?
