House of Secrets #66 - Alex Toth art

House of Secrets v1 #66, 1963 - Barraged by ultra-violet rays, Eclipso takes a heroic turn and vanquishes a worm-like threat from outer space. Alex Toth renders the tale admirably, using fine strokes to increase the sense of movement and spontaneity. This is most evident on the opening splash, vastly improving the same scene depicted on the cover. This story was later reprinted in Detective Comics #441. Other artists in this issue include Mort Meskin and George Roussos. This is number 5 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.
