Adventure Comics #419 - Alex Toth art

Adventure Comics v1 #419 featuring Supergirl, 1972 - Concluding the story begun in the previous issue, the Black Canary is taken hostage by a female gang. As before, Alex Toth's straightforward style borders on simplistic, but compensates with bold layout and panel designs. Especially clever is his opening splash, depicting the unconscious heroine and her captors within a montage of photographic frames. Elsewhere in the issue, new Supergirl and Zatanna tales accompany reprints of the Phantom Stranger and the Enchantress. Other artists in this issue include Tony DeZuniga, Bob Oksner and Dick Giordano. This is number 2 of 7 Adventure issues with Toth art and/or covers.
