Maverick #10 - non-attributed Alex Toth art


Maverick v1 #10, 1960 - A dapper young suitor arrives into town, hoping to impress his fiancee and his future father-in-law. In the process of settling in, his fine clothes get roughed up, leaving him in a quandary. The sometimes gritty approach of Alex Toth works perfectly for the western genre and for this tale in particular. His opening panel is small, but packs enough information to establish the setting and main characters. Note that some comic book guides have neglected to credit this story to Toth. Dan Spiegle ably illustrates the remaining two stories in the book. This is number 1 of 2 Maverick issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Maverick issues.
