Big Town #11 - non-attributed Alex Toth cover?

Big Town v1 #11, 1951 - This odd cover layout takes full advantage of the series' left leaning masthead. Two gunmen shoot through a small opening at the lead characters, a daring reporter and his assistant. While not attributed to Alex Toth in comic book guides, other sources do make the claim. The hero's profile resembles his style, but the foreshortening of the gunmen's arms are poorly executed. If it's by Toth, it's certainly not representative of his best work. This is number 3 of 4 Big Town issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Big Town issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
