    Alex Nino - Original Splash Page Art for House of Secrets #109, page 1 (DC, 1972). When there is suffering, agony and torture, the sufferer is certain to seek escape from such hurt..."And in Death There is No Escape!" A cold, unfeeling husband sits idly by while his wife, standing on a window ledge, readies herself to leap to her death. All he can muster is "I do believe you could be more imaginative in your choice of earthly departure!" Alex Nino creates a wondrous two-panel page, every square inch covered with his incredible idiosyncratic inking. A cross-hatched wonderland of lines, dabs, and streaks, when combined, have an almost haphazard finesse, and it all works! A sign of his true genius. The overall page size is 10.5" x 15.75" with a 10" x 15" image area. The art is clean and bright, with the exception of a very light stain along the extreme left edge, some blue line markings in the upper portion, and a small tape stain at the bottom.
