Roy Rogers and Trigger #120 - Alex Toth art


Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #120, 1957 - In a one time occurrence on this series, Alex Toth illustrates not one, but two Roy Rogers features. An old man dies of a heart attack in "Hidden Gold", but not before writing a partial clue to his buried treasure. The first several pages are concisely and carefully drawn, but the action scenes starting on page six have unexpectedly scant details. The final two concluding pages eventually resume the same level of quality from the start. "Masquerade", about an outlaw who's a master of disguise, is more consistent and perhaps slightly more varied in its drawings. Both stories are impeccable in the design of each panel and the overall sequencing (even with the strictness of a nine panel grid). This is number 3 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.
