Roy Rogers and Trigger #122 - Alex Toth art

Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #122, 1958 - Roy Rogers investigates a pony express robbery, finding an unlikely clue. Alex Toth continues to draw the lead story with an impressionistic style perfectly suited for the western genre. While the vast majority of pages are rendered with clarity and purpose, a few panels toward the story's end seem curiously unfinished. All in all, Toth's art does not disappoint and few artists could make readers feel the force of a cowboy's punch (see interior page below) like he can. Dan Spiegle makes a respectable artistic contribution on the second Roy Rogers story. This is number 5 of 7 Roy Rogers and Trigger issues with Toth art and/or covers.
