Crime Files #5 - Alex Toth art


Crime Files v1 #5, 1952 - After shooting a cop, two killers find themselves surrounded at every turn. Despite being a single page, this Alex Toth tale is lavishly drawn. Fine screen patterns are applied to backgrounds and shadows. Some areas seem muddy due to the poor reproduction, but overall his efforts are superlative. The effects are similar to his work in Crime and Punishment. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska. This is number 1 of 1 Crime Files issues with Toth art and/or covers.
