77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1106 - Alex Toth art

77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1106, 1960 - Kookie borrows his detective dad's car, only to be kidnapped by a gang of thugs. Alex Toth's lead story begins competently enough, but the artwork becomes more erratic midway through (see interior page below). By contrast, "Lights, Camera, Danger" seems to be drawn with a more confident line. The opening panel's scene of a restaurant parking lot is impressive, not only in Toth's rendition of cars but its overall naturalism. The artist's single page "Kookie's Catch" rounds out the book, but an alternate version of the same issue replaces it with an ad. This is number 2 of 3 77 Sunset Strip issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or 77 Sunset Strip issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
