Hot Wheels #5 - Alex Toth art & cover

Alex Toth
Hot Wheels v1 #5, 1970 - After the Wheelers buy a 1932 classic automobile, its original gangster owner resurfaces to claim it at any cost. More experimental than previous issues, Alex Toth strictly adheres to a black bordered, nine panel grid on every page. It has a vaguely similar effect to a slideshow, but the artist's excellent pencils (and inks) keep the story from becoming monotonous. Other artists in this issue include Ric Estrada and Dick Giordano. This is number 5 of 5 Hot Wheels issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Hot Wheels issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
