Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #960 - Alex Toth art

Walt Disney's Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #960, 1958 - Zorro temporarily aids the police to upset the plans of a gang of conspirators. The opening page briefly recaps the hero's identity and motivations. For the most part, Alex Toth sticks to the six panel grid for the layouts of both stories. Unlike the previous issue, the artist completes each page with great skill and care. There are many superbly drawn panels, but the architectural details on the second story (see interior page below) stand out. This is number 4 of 8 Zorro issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). These stories were later reprinted in Zorro v2 #2. See today's posts or more Toth or Zorro issues.
