Out of the Shadows #6 - Alex Toth art


Out of the Shadows v1 #6, 1952 - A treasure map leads a pair of thugs to an ancient temple, where they inadvertently free Circle, the mythical sorceress. Along with his trademark page layouts, Alex Toth draws an eerily disturbing tale. While typical of his work in many respects, his most innovative page involves an attack of giant rats (page 7). A single scene divides into four panels, lengthening the pacing. Toth uses a typographic sound effect to bind them together. This story was later reprinted in Seduction of the Innocent #5. Other artists in this issue include Jack Katz, Ross Andru and Rocco Mastroserio. This is number 2 of 4 Out of the Shadows issues with Toth art and/or covers.
