Secret Hearts #142 - Alex Toth art


Secret Hearts v1 #142, 1971 - In chapter three of "20 Miles to Heartbreak" (continued from Secret Hearts #141), Melanie and her sister Monica feel the full force of their obsessive mother's wrath. Alex Toth's pacing is dependably sound, despite the sameness of his page layouts. Facial close-ups and changing viewpoints offset some of the repetition. Toth's pencils are ultimately watered down by Vince Colletta's lackluster inking. This story (later reprinted in Young Love #124concludes in Young Love #79Other artists in this issue include Ric Estrada and Dick Giordano. This is number 2 of 4 Secret Hearts issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Secret Hearts issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
