The Boys from Derby: "Hidden Paradise" by Gill and Nieto

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! For a long time Ol' Groove has intended to showcase some of the far-out art of Argentinean comix artist Enrique Nieto (aka F. Nieto, Fred Nieto, and Joe Nito). Nieto's art is an acquired taste, to be sure, but once you get into it--wow! Nieto's art just screams "1970s" at Ol' Groove 'cause I' don't think I've seen a style like his before or since that dazzling decade! If you like Enrique's work, there's plenty more where this came from, so just ask! Meantime, let's truck on down to "Hidden Paradise" from Monster Hunters #4 (November 1976), written by Joe Gill!
Dig that Tom Sutton cover!


  1. The strong lines of this artist remind me somewhat of another artist: Fred Carrillo. I remember Carrillo from some horror stories in DC Comics in the late 70s.

    1. cool. i'm happy someone somewhere out there still remembers my grandpa's works :)
