Weird War Tales #6 - Alex Toth art, Joe Kubert cover
Weird War Tales v1 #6, 1972 - As Joe Kubert's cover suggests, this issue is dedicated to robot-themed stories. While his cover concept is sound, the artist seems to put less effort than usual in the actual execution. Alex Toth does the intro and concluding pages, following three GIs during an enemy barrage. His first two pages are the most effective, varying line thicknesses to increase depth. Subsequent pages become more graphic as thicker strokes become the norm. Regardless, Toth's work stands out from the rest of the issue. This is number 2 of 3 Weird War Tales issues with Toth art and/or covers.

New format tweaks continue, hopefully improving the site. All posts now have large scans of both covers and interior pages. All scans are now captioned, credited to the featured artist on this blog. Any feedback is appreciated.
