Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #920 - Alex Toth art

Walt Disney's Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #920, 1958 - In this complete two-part story, a corrupt commandante surrounds a Spanish mission in pursuit of his quarry. Alex Toth's art is a bit more hurried than the previous issue and adheres more strictly to a nine panel grid. Regardless, the artist makes do with the layouts, offsetting the repetitive pace with more varied drawings. Toth's illustrations on the back cover are surprisingly exquisite. These stories were later reprinted in Zorro v2 #9. This is number 2 of 8 Zorro issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Toth or Zorro issues.
