Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #1003 - Alex Toth art


Walt Disney's Zorro / Four Color Comics v2 #1003, 1959 - Bandits kidnap Don Diego's faithful manservant, raising the ire of a certain caped crusader. Well paced and laid out, Alex Toth's drawings are spontaneously rendered but maintain just enough detail and clarity. A masterful demonstration of light and shade is shown on the interior page below. Even more impressive is opening panel in the second tale, a Spanish-style courtyard setting where Toth dapples shadows on the two foreground figures. These stories were later reprinted in Zorro v2 #5. This is number 6 of 8 Zorro issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Toth or Zorro issues.
