Danger Trail #3 - Alex Toth art

Danger Trail v1 #3, 1950 - In the Sahara desert, native Touregs fight the French Foreign Legion for dominance over the region. Oddly, the story is told from a battle flag’s point of view. Alex Toth draws his finest work of the series. His drawings and panel sequences are equally exemplary. His opening splash, a desert scene of machine guns converging on its targets, is impeccably designed. Toth allows the unprinted area to extend the sky beyond the confines of the page. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino and Joe Giella. This is number 3 of 5 Danger Trail issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Danger Trail issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
