Heroic Comics #43 - Alex Toth art


Heroic Comics v1 #43, 1947 - Four boys find themselves adrift on their raft and heading out to sea before a pilot concocts an innovative way to rescue them. Longer than your typical Heroic Comics tale, Alex Toth makes full use of the extra panels. His nicely drawn pencils are further enhanced by his carefully considered inking. The policeman and pilot’s clothing, the light sport plane, and the ocean waves are given much-needed dimension. Toth’s admirable effort stands out from a collection of otherwise poorly illustrated stories. Other artists in this issue include H.C. Kiefer, among others. This is number 8 of 12 Heroic Comics issues with Toth art and/or covers.  See today's posts or more Toth or Heroic Comics issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
