Personal Love #11 - Alex Toth art

Personal Love v1 #11, 1951 - Arriving in Miami, a young woman receives the attention of both a dashing millionaire and a lowly elevator operator. Most of the settings occur on beachfronts and sailboats, giving Alex Toth the chance to illustrate the leisurely life. In the most compelling scenes, the artist employs shadows and textures when a tropical storm arrives, then quickly follows up with lighter, open panels in the aftermath. While certain pages appear to be inked by someone else (?), Toth's work as a whole is steady and self-assured. Interestingly, the artist signs the first panel as "Hawk". The photo cover features actors Gene Tierney and Glenn Ford. This is number 1 of 1 Personal Love issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Personal Love issues.
