77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1159 - Alex Toth art


77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1159, 1961 - Alex Toth's inside front and back cover art is too hurried and simplistic, but he makes up for it on the two main features. In the first, Kookie trades in his jalopy to impress a beautiful woman. Unfortunately, crooks also want the car for its hidden contents. The facial expressions of the characters on page 2 and subsequent car chase scenes (see interior page below) are among the artistic highlights. Toth's second tale just meets expectations, despite some over-emphasized eyebrows on one of the characters. An alternate version of this issue replaces the back cover story "Kookie's Quandary" with an ad. This is number 3 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.
