House of Secrets #63 - Alex Toth art

House of Secrets v1 #63, 1963 - Introduced just two issues prior, Eclipso was a villain in the tradition of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Changed by lunar and artificial eclipses, Dr. Bruce Gordon would commit crimes as his devious alter ego. Alex Toth does a credible job on the series, beginning with this issue. His style seems more kinetic than usual, appropriate given the amount of action. This story was later reprinted in World's Finest Comics #226. Other artists in this isse include Mort Meskin. This is number 2 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. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
