House of Secrets #83 - Alex Toth art


House of Secrets v1 #83, 1969 - As a dying man sleeps, he dreams of another dimension where he commits heroic deeds and wins the heart of a princess. Alex Toth uses his imagination to create a strangely fantastical yet palatable world. The graphic approach to his illustrations is comparable to his other works drawn in the same era. The opening splash, using multi-sequencing, montage and psychedelic typography, is weirdly compelling. Kudos go to Toth for risking such experimentation. This story was later reprinted in DC Special Blue Ribbon Digest #24. Other artists in this issue include Gray Morrow, Bill Draut, Dick Giordano, Art Saaf and Frank Giacoia. Cover by Bill Draut. This is number 7 of 8 House of Secrets issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).
