Roy Rogers and Trigger #125 - mis-attributed Alex Toth art


Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #125, 1958 - A stand-alone page at the end of this issue educates readers on the old west's prospectors. Overstreet credits Alex Toth, while an online Toth checklist calls it "questionable". Comparing the page to the artist's other works of the same time period, there are similar examples. Still, the men's faces of panel four are the least Toth-like in approach, leading me to believe this was drawn by another artist. I'd welcome other opinions. Toth's work does appear in seven other issues of Roy Rogers and Trigger. See today's posts or more Toth or Roy Rogers and Trigger issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
