Big Town #12 - non-attributed Alex Toth cover

Alex Toth

Big Town v1 #12, 1951 - Of all the contested Alex Toth covers on this title, this one seems most likely by his hand. The ace reporter and his aide discover a newly disturbed tomb in a cemetery. The woman is first to recognize they're at gunpoint and reacts accordingly. The stances and faces of both figures are consistent with some of the artist's other works, but Toth's style seems most obvious in the facial expressions. This is number 4 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.
