Out of the Shadows #5 - Alex Toth art

Out of the Shadows v1 #5, 1954 - Evading the police, a thief finds refuge in his uncle's cabin, located on a desolate shore in Maine. Alex Toth employs heavy shadows and cropping to evoke the mysterious unknown. While effective in some cases, other panels suffer from lack of clarity and information. In general though, the artwork's strength is in Toth's purposeful sequencing and layout design. Other artists in this issue include George Roussos, George Tuska and Jerry Grandenetti. This is number 1 of 4 Out of the Shadows issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Out of the Shadows issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
