Hot Wheels #2 - Alex Toth art

Hot Wheels v1 #2 dc 1970s bronze age comic book cover art by Alex Toth
Hot Wheels v1 #2, 1970 - After being challenged to a drag race by his nemesis Dexter, Jack Wheeler discovers his own car missing in action. Alex Toth's drawings retain a graphic simplicity, augmented by superb layouts and deft sequencing. Perhaps most cleverly, the artist portrays a massive explosion through creative typography alone (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Jack Keller and Ric Estrada. This is number 2 of 5 Hot Wheels issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Hot Wheels issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
