Lovers #67 - Alex Toth art


Lovers v1 #67, 1955 - A production of George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion hires a young female typist, and several men wager on the success of her own transformation. Alex Toth does a beautiful job of storytelling, revealing just enough information in each panel to keep the reader informed. Some of his facial expressions are masterfully subtle, particularly the men. What makes this piece extraordinary is the smooth, polished inking throughout. Sometimes credited to his frequent partner Mike Peppe, it seems too finished and differs stylistically to other works. Toth's own approach is also looser, and would be unlikely to have been the inker. Regardless of the attribution, this is one of the artist's finer romance tales. This story was later reprinted in My Love v2 #38. This is number 1 of 1 Lovers issues with Toth art and/or covers.
