Zorro #12 - Alex Toth art


Walt Disney's Zorro v1 #12, 1960 - The quality of Alex Toth's artwork varies widely, from poorly drawn to excellent. Of his two feature stories, "The Runaway Witness" is by far better. A young woman sees a murder committed before her eyes, immediately putting herself in danger. Though roughly applied, Toth's appealing characters and clear storytelling stand out. Surprisingly, his best work is a single page toward the end of the book. These stories were later reprinted in Zorro v2 #7. This is number 8 of 8 Zorro issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Toth or Zorro issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
