Roy Rogers and Trigger #111 - Alex Toth art

Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #111, 1957 - A Texas Ranger searches for an expert safecracker, years after he disappears under an assumed name. Alex Toth's first story for the title is a mere four pages, but outshines every other "Chuckwagon Charlie's Tales" in the series. Close-up shots of the two main characters draw readers into their thoughts and intentions, while the backgrounds convey just enough information to establish the setting. The former thief's nervous attempt to open the safe on the last page is both intimate and empathetic, a testament to Toth's draftsmanship. This is number 1 of 7 Roy Rogers and Trigger issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Roy Rogers issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
