The FBI Story / Four Color Comics v2 #1069 - Alex Toth art

The FBI Story / Four Color Comics v2 #1069, 1959 - A Jimmy Stewart photo cover graces the cover of this movie adaptation. In a documentary style that follows the film, the story chronicles the careers of two committed FBI agents. The story covers several decades beginning with J. Edgar Hoover's appointment as the FBI's first director in 1935. Alex Toth illustrates the book in an informative style and manageable pace. His line quality and exceptional brushwork vary, depending on the setting or intended mood. On pages 22-23, the artist's skillful control of lighting makes a dramatic scene even more moving. This is number 1 of 1 FBI Story issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or FBI Story issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
