Thrilling Romances #23 - Alex Toth art


Thrilling Romances v1 #23, 1953 - Immigrating to the United States, a young newlywed looks forward to reuniting with her husband. Unfortunately, her new father-in-law is cold and disapproving. Working with a lot of dialogue and narration, Alex Toth integrates his visuals seamlessly with the text. Most of the panels are varying degrees of facial close-ups, making the characters more personal and empathic to the reader. Tiny illustrations accompany much of the narration, bridging scenes or reinforcing themes and settings. Toth's first panel, with its strong perspective and illusion of depth, displays a mastery of composition. This is number 3 of 5 Thrilling Romances issues with Toth art.
