Western Roundup #18 - Alex Toth art

Western Roundup v1 #18, 1957 - This Dell Giant features Roy Rogers, Johnny Mack Brown, Rex Allen and numerous other western heroes starring in their own respective stories. A quaint Flying A's Range Rider tale by Alex Toth also resides in this issue. A local store is burglarized, coinciding with the arrival of traveling performers. The artwork is slow to build interest, but Toth's draftsmanship quickly comes to the fore. His action scenes (pages 5-6) are particularly good, drawn naturally and without exaggeration. Every line and brushstroke is carefully placed, resulting in one of his best short stories for Dell. This is number 1 of 2 Western Roundup issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Western Roundup issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
