Rex Allen #24 - Alex Toth art


Rex Allen v1 #24, 1957 - With Rex's help, a teen-aged boy tries to convince his brother to quit a gang of thieves. Alex Toth's only work on the series, this back-up story is among his finest within the western genre. The drawings are heavily detailed, using lighting and contrast to enhance drama (see interior page below). Toth's excellent draftsmanship pervades each scene, especially the characters' faces. Most notably, he does a decent job in capturing Rex Allen's likeness. This is number 1 of 1 Rex Allen issues with Toth art and/or covers.
