Addicted to Alex Nino: "The Day After Doomsday"

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! It's time for another brain-blasting tale from the maniacal minds of of writer Jack Oleck and artist supreme Alex Nino. This one comes from DC's Weird War Tales #69 (August 1978). Prepare to face..."The Day After Doomsday"!


  1. awesome! another nino story i've never seen before.
    that first page is crazy cool. :)

  2. Awesome. I'm now off to browse the other Nino posts!
    The Filipino comic artists are amazing and in my opinion, seriously overlooked. Gerry Talaoc is another amazing artist. His reprinted Unknown Soldier work in DC's Showcase Presents series is fabulous.

  3. I'm gonna have devote at least a week to the far-out artists of the Philippines! I do have a week of Tony DeZuniga in the works...

  4. Hi Groove, I want to buy this issue on ebay but want to make sure this story is in issue 69. DC Wiki has the story listed in issue 68. Is # 69 correct ?

    1. Thanks! It's because of your site I became a Nino fan. Please post more Nino stories.
      Best wishes,
