Creepy #124 - Alex Toth art


Creepy v1 #124, 1981 - Attending a sophisticated magic show, Blackwell the Magician becomes obsessed with his competitor's final trick: the decapitation of a young woman. Alex Toth only provides the inks on this story, but raises the artwork's stature immensely. It helps that Alexis Romero's pencils are not too dissimilar in style. The page designs are excellent, bolstered by Toth's skillful proportions of black and white (see interior page below). The artist rarely inked other people's work, but this example demonstrates his strong influence regardless of contribution, Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino, Rudy Nebres, Martin Salvator and Alfredo Alcala. This is number 5 of 8 Creepy issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).
