Plop #11 - Alex Toth art

Plop v1 #11 dc bronze age comic book cover art by Basil Wolverton
Plop v1 #11, 1975 - Alex Toth does a loose parody of Hugh Hefner, the eccentric founder of Playboy magazine. A bikini clad female is the focal point of the opening page, followed by a terrific panel sequence (see interior page shown below). The central character's figure is superimposed on top of several smaller panels, creatively marking the passage of time and space. His overly simplified face is distracting at times, but seems allowable given this type of genre. Despite the short page count, the pacing and layouts show Toth at his most innovative. Basil Wolverton continues doing his twisted covers and Sergio Aragones contributes a short story. This is number 1 of 1 Plop issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Plop or Toth issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
