Gale Storm / Four Color Comics v2 #1105 - Alex Toth art


Oh! Susanna, Gale Storm / Four Color Comics v2 #1105, 1960 - Based on the CBS television show of the same name, the stories mix light romance with humorous situations. Alex Toth's loose, but realistic drawing style (often used for Dell's comic adaptations) suits the tales perfectly. The opening panel of "The Sea Horse" comfortably squeezes in the perspective view of a cruise ship, establishing the setting as well as scale. Toth's characters, particularly women, are distinctive in their individuality. His inside covers have a tad more detail, perhaps to compensate for lack of color. This is number 1 of 1 Gale Storm issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Gale Storm issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
