Blackhawk #260 - Alex Toth art

Blackhawk v1 #260, 1983 - Rather than one long single story, this edition is divided into three segments, each drawn by a different artist. Alex Toth illustrates a tale of Blackhawk's old friend who never manages to stay out of trouble. Though not outstanding overall, the artist does provide a couple of superbly laid out pages of the hero in aerial combat (see interior page below). They also maintain a sense of spontaneity, breaking free from Frank Giacoia's inks. Other artists in this issue include Dick Rockwell, Dan Spiegle and Howard Chaykin (art & cover). This is number 1 of 1 Blackhawk issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Blackhawk issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
