New Romances #11 - Alex Toth art

New Romances v1 #11, 1952 - Due to his dying mother's wish, Gary agrees to marry his childhood friend Adele despite his love for someone else. Alex Toth's second effort on this series shows creative and varied layouts. With the exception of some facial distortion on page 2 panel 3, Mike Peppe's inks remain faithful to the pencils. Just the sheer number of different angles and facial expressions is impressive, as Toth pushes the limits of the genre. Other artists in this issue include John Celardo. The cover photo features Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift. This is number 2 of 8 New Romances issues with Toth art and/or covers.

  1. The downward angle in panel three doesn't work very well- the figures seem to occupy different spaces.
