Plop #11 - Alex Toth art

Plop v1 #11, 1975 - Alex Toth does a loose parody of Hugh Hefner, the eccentric founder of Playboy magazine. A bikini clad female is the focal point of the opening page, followed by a creative panel sequence (see interior page below). The central character's figure is superimposed on top of several small panels, marking the passage of time and space. His overly simplified face is distracting at times, but seems acceptable for this genre. Despite the short page count, the pacing and layouts show Toth at his most innovative. Basil Wolverton continues doing his twisted covers and Sergio Aragones also contributes a short story. This is number 1 of 1 Plop issues with Toth art and/or covers.
