My Greatest Adventure #81 - Alex Toth art


My Greatest Adventure v1 #81, 1963 - Two scientists and a reporter travel to a remote valley in Pakistan, looking for clues that lead them to the anthropological missing link. The art by Alex Toth is adequate, filling the pages with remote landscapes and prehistoric life-forms (see interior page below). The artist's best work occurs on the opening splash, depicting a large ape atop an enraged mastodon. Despite the theme, Toth creates a strong composition with a superb balance of light and dark. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Moreira and Bruno Premiani. This is number 5 of 6 My Greatest Adventure issues with Toth art and/or covers.
