Sugar Bowl Comics #1 - Alex Toth art & cover

Sugar Bowl Comics v1 #1, 1948 - This teenage series mixes conventional humor stories with a few thinly-veiled morality tales. A foreign student becomes the subject of harassment, and the lead character nobly stands up for him. This Alex Toth tale is very early in his career and one of his first non-superhero works. He struggles with figure drawing on many of the pages and his layouts are sometimes difficult to follow. His cover design is slightly better, benefiting from its clarity and simplicity. Ironically, Toth's best effort on the issue is a pair of text illos accompanying the story of Jane Addams, founder of Chicago's Hull House. This is number 1 of 2 Sugar Bowl Comics issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Sugar Bowl Comics issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
