Twilight Zone #4 - Alex Toth art

Twilight Zone v1 #4, 1963 - Two terrific stories by Alex Toth grace the fourth issue of this long running sci-fi series. A thief in 19th century France snatches a mystical key in the first tale, while a manager in a present day department store inexplicably disappears. Both are well paced and sequenced, although "Secret of the Key" has a bit more depth and texture (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in Mystery Comics Digest #3. "The Captive", a slightly less well-inked tale, was later reprinted in Mystery Comics Digest #12 and Mystery Comics Digest #21. Other artists in this issue include Mike Sekowsky. This is number 2 of 2 Twilight Zone issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Toth or Twilight Zone issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
