Sugar Bowl Comics #3 - Alex Toth art


Sugar Bowl Comics v1 #3, 1948 - While artistically superior to the other stories within the same issue, Alex Toth nonetheless struggles with some of the basics. Figure drawing, foreshortening and even basic composition are lacking here, but these skills would be finely tuned in subsequent years. One revealing highlight of this story is his early inclination toward heaving inking. He shows an intuitive knack for distributing lights and darks. This is number 2 of 2 Sugar Bowl Comics issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Sugar Bowl Comics issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
