Yellowjacket Comics #7 - Alex Toth art

Yellowjacket Comics v1 #7, 1946 - One of the more obscure superheroes from the 1940s, The Yellowjacket fought crime with his fists and with the aid of trained bees. Typical of the era, the issue also contains a wide variety of genres, including Diana the Huntress, Tales of Terror, Cap'n Grim and Fip the Filipino Kid. Within this assortment is a single page of military gags by Alex Toth. Done early in his career, the artist struggles with the figure drawings, perspective and general layout. The art is primitive and amateurish, though not uncommon among golden age comics. This is number 1 of 1 Yellowjacket Comics issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Yellowjacket Comics issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
