Strange Adventures #17 - Alex Toth art

Strange Adventures v1 #17, 1952 - A brilliant scientist becomes comatose, keeping the secret that could save the world. Bob Daily, with the use of a futuristic ray, shrinks to a size where he can repair the man’s brain. One of Alex Toth’s weaker efforts, his pencils are largely diminished throughout. Inker Bernard Sachs is a frequent collaborator, but his style seems incompatible on many works. Toth’s mastery of pacing and layout appears solely on page 5, where the tiny protagonist makes his way into the scientist’s brain. Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson, Carmine Infantino and Gil Kane. This is number 5 of 7 Strange Adventures issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Strange Adventures issues.
