Exciting War #8 - Alex Toth art

Exciting War v1 #8, 1952 - A paratrooper and infantryman join forces behind enemy lines, eventually earning each other's respect. Rather than idealized warfare, Alex Toth renders the tale with sincerity and a gritty realism. Each panel is distilled down to basic designs, conveying just enough information. His generous use of silhouettes provide contrast against the more detailed scenes. Toth's final page is especially minimal, yet perfectly matches the tone and setting. This is number 1 of 1 Exciting War issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Exciting War issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
