Black Hood #3 - Alex Toth art & cover

Alex Toth
Black Hood v1 #3, 1983 - Rarely seen, Alex Toth draws a wrap-around cover on his final issue of the series. And typical of the format, the illustration is stronger when viewed as a complete spread. Artist Gray Morrow is tasked with the Black Hood feature inside, giving the story a newspaper strip-like realism. Toth's secondary tale, The Fox, is graphically rendered and visually concise. Abundant text fills the final two pages, consequently minimizing the artwork. Fortunately, this is offset by the artist's innovative layouts at the beginning of the story. This is number 3 of 3 Black Hood issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Black Hood issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
