Real McCoys / Four Color Comics v2 #1071 - Alex Toth art


The Real McCoys / Four Color Comics v2 #1071, 1960 - Starring Walter Brennan, this television comedy ran for an impressive seven year run. Dell capitalizes on its popularity with this premiere issue. Unlike most of his works for this publisher, Alex Toth's artwork is largely disappointing. Layouts are uninspired and his drawings are rendered erratically throughout the book. The entire issue seems rushed with the minimum of effort. The second feature, "Gettin' Grandpa's Goat", is marginally better (see interior page below) but falters toward the end. This is number 1 of 2 Real McCoys issues with Toth art and/or covers.
