House of Secrets #48 - Alex Toth art

House of Secrets v1 #48, 1961 - An Earth scientist trades places with a scientist from another dimension, ot knowing the consequences of a bizarre trade. Drawn delicately, this Alex Toth tale nonetheless maintains necessary weight and contrast. The artist's well-known draftsmanship permeates each page, but especially the opening splash. The scene captures the precise moment of the "swap", enhanced by finely drawn lines of movement and vibration. This story was later reprinted in House of Secrets #96. Other artists in this issue include Dick Dillin, Sheldon Moldoff, Bernard Baily, Mort Meskin and George Roussos. This is number 1 of 8 House of Secrets issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Toth or House of Secrets issues.
