Colt .45 #6 - Alex Toth art


Colt .45 v1 #6, 1960 - Alex Toth drew relatively few lengthy western tales for Dell Publishing, more often producing short back-up stories such as the one in this issue. Newly released from prison, an ex-gunslinger seeks one of the jury members that sent him there. The first panel is a bird's eye view of the back of a general store, a vantage point that looks more like the choice of a cinematographer than comic book artist. As usual, Toth does what it takes to tell the story concisely yet uniquely, even with a meager four pages to work with. This is number 1 of 1 Colt .45 issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
