House of Mystery #149 - Alex Toth art

House of Mystery v1 #149, 1965 - A man returns to his hometown, only to be mistaken for his dead brother. The tale begins with a masterfully drawn first panel. Alex Toth places him in a dark interior room, partially lit by the moonlight. His confused state is punctuated by careful detailing of his shadowed face and clothing. Like other works from the same era, the layouts are a tad busy but offset by the fine detailing. This story has been reprinted in the Unexpected #126. Other artists in this issue include George Roussos, Joe Certa and Dick Dillin (cover). This is number 3 of 8 House of Mystery issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
