Heroic Comics #32 - Alex Toth art


Heroic Comics v1 #32, 1945 - Patriotic-themed stories were standard fare on this title, including this short tale by Alex Toth. This early effort shows less of the precise panel designs he would later be known for, concentrating instead on the drawings themselves. Note the interesting technique he used on page two, panel five: extending the panel to accommodate a circular shape just big enough to fit a distant airplane. It works surprisingly well, and suggests a bulls-eye or gun sight. Other artists in this issue include George Carlson, C.W. Winter, and an artist vaguely similar to Bill Everett. Other artists in this issue include H.C. Kiefer, among others. This is number 1 of 12 Heroic Comics issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Heroic Comics issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
