Wagon Train #5 - Alex Toth art

Wagon Train v1 #5, 1960 - Like many Dell Publishing issues during the 1950s and 1960s, this western series coincided with a network television show. The photographic cover features lead actors Ward Bond and Robert Horton. Inside, Alex Toth's short story is the smallest contribution, sandwiched between two main features. His hurried, loosely rendered drawings lack much needed definition. Backgrounds are minimal and page layouts are also disappointingly mediocre. Although a longtime veteran of western comics, this is far from Toth's best effort. This is number 1 of 1 Wagon Train issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
