My Own Romance #55 - Alex Toth art


My Own Romance v1 #55, 1957 - A talented young singer moves to New York, leaving behind her boyfriend and his small nightclub. Alex Toth's only work on the series is a stunner. Layouts and panels are delicately composed for maximum effect. His inks are more dominant than usual, but don't detract from the overall aesthetic. Note the deep shadows on the boyfriend's face (see interior page below) as he receives the disappointing news. Toth's mastery of character expression and emotion are showcased in this effort. Other artists in this issue include Jay Scott Pike, Ann Brewster and Vince Colletta. This is number 1 of 1 My Own Romance issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or My Own Romance issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
