Jet Fighters #7 - Alex Toth art


Jet Fighters v1 #7, 1953 - A jet pilot has numerous sightings of a UFO, leading his superiors to question his sanity and his comrades to chide him. Plenty of dialogue crowds the smaller panels in this short story. Alex Toth does his best to tell it efficiently and straightforwardly, perhaps too much so. The opening panel is the story's largest but too conservative to elicit excitement. Toth's multiple vantage points on subsequent pages are composed more interestingly. Other artists in this issue include Ross Andru, Mike Esposito, Mort Meskin and John Celardo. This is number 2 of 2 Jet Fighters issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Jet Fighters issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
