Addicted to Alex Nino: "The Mercenary!" by Kanigher and Nino

Greetings, Groove-ophiles! Ol' Groove just noticed that it's been more than a month since our last Alex Nino fix! That's way too long, don'tcha think? To rectify that particular sitch, here's a far-out (and I mean that in every sense) sci-fi/war tale from (where else?) Weird War Tales #61 (December 1977--yep the same ish that brought us the awesome Roger McKenzie/Howard Chaykin tale posted here!). "The Mercenary!" was written by Robert Kanigher and features that wild and experimental Nino art we all love so well. And it's all here just for you, baby!


  1. loving the Nino art work, which brought me to your blog in the first place.

  2. Plenty more Nino to come, Matthew! No more missed months...
