Alex Nino - "Drinkers of Dust" (Fantagor Press 1989)

"Drinkers of Dust," drawn by the legendary Alex Nino (Philippines 1940 -  ) and written by Jan Strnad, was published as a backup feature in Richard Corben's Den #8 in 1989.  Nino is well known for his striking black and white ink work, but "Dust" shows off his highly individualistic approach to color as well.  Nino has a wild, impressionistic palette here, and rather than using his trademark black ink at all times, he leaves a surprising amount of the rendering and modelling to the color work.
