House of Secrets #65 - Alex Toth art


House of Secrets v1 #65, 1963 - Offered a cure for his affliction, Bruce Gordon is lured to a scientific compound where Eclipso becomes an unwilling slave. Set initially at a carnival, Alex Toth's visuals are festive yet clear and concise. These same drawings are accompanied by varied and purposeful layouts. On pages 3-4, the villain's attempted escape on a roller coaster (see interior page below) is an artistic high point. This story was later reprinted in Action Comics #413. Other artists in this issue include Mort Meskin. This is number 4 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 Toth checklist.
