Boy Loves Girl #46 - non-attributed Alex Toth art


Boy Loves Girl v1 #46, 1954 - When a disease unexpectedly results in her loss of hearing, Diane becomes an astute lip reader. She carefully keeps her deafness a secret, even from the men she dates. Alex Toth's drawings are loose, almost spontaneous looking. Some panels need more definition than others, but character faces generally remain intact. Plenty of dialogue also crowds much of the story, with little variation in the layouts. Compared to his other romance works from the same era, Toth falls just below expectations. Other artists in this issue include Fred Kida, George Tuska, Tony Cataldo and Ben Brown. This is number 2 of 3 Boy Loves Girl issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Boy Loves Girl issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
