Addicted to Alex Nino: "Old Samurai Never Die!"

Hey, hey, hey! Been a while since we grooved to some Alex Nino excellence, hasn't it? Well, that little drought ends right now! Here's "Old Samurai Never Die!" from Weird War Tales #13 (January 1973), written by Arnold Drake.


  1. awesome!
    i've never seen this before.
    thanks for posting. :)

  2. awesome art style and colors. thanks for sharing!

  3. FYI: The sign on the gate of the first page is katakana, a Japanese syllabary for foreign words. If I convert it into Romanized form, it "spells" "Ninyo," or, rather, "Niño." Cool.
