Rin Tin Tin #36 - Alex Toth art


Rin Tin Tin v1 #36, 1960 - Alex Toth did a handful of short back-up stories for Dell, primarily in western comics. Set in the American old west, an aged Chinaman becomes the target of thieves. The opening scene, depicting two cowboys perched on a high overlook (see interior page below), gives readers a comfortably wide vista within a half-page panel. Toth firmly establishes the story's setting with only the most essential elements. His fine drawings are augmented by well-timed and carefully paced storytelling, despite the relatively short page count. This is number 2 of 2 Rin Tin Tin issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Rin Tin Tin issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
