Brave and the Bold #53 - Alex Toth art


Brave and the Bold v1 #53, 1964 - A miniature world begins to expand back to its original size, endangering the Earth. Can the Atom and the Flash devise a solution before it's too late? This sci-fi themed tale is one of Alex Toth's longest of his career. Despite the length there are few large panels and only a single splash page. His drawings are neither inferior nor spectacular, just barely meeting expectations. Toth's style seems less suited for the super-hero genre, evidenced by this and other examples. This story was later reprinted in Action Comics #406 and #407. This is number 1 of 1 Brave and the Bold issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Brave and the Bold issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
