Roy Rogers and Trigger #121 - Alex Toth art

Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #121, 1958 - Roy Rogers steps into the boxing ring to help a struggling family, even though he faces a gorilla-sized and (gorilla-faced) opponent. Alex Toth's design of the individual panels collectively tells the story with razor-sharp clarity. The artwork is far from simplistic, tackling the many crowd scenes with plenty of detail. His initial fight scene of mismatched combatants on page three is especially impressive. This story was later reprinted in Roy Rogers and Trigger v2 #1. This is number 4 of 7 Roy Rogers and Trigger issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Roy Rogers issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
