House of Mystery #120 - Alex Toth art

House of Mystery v1 #120, 1962 - A band of aliens invades a small town, hunting one of their own in human disguise. The residents conceal the fugitive, having befriended him over the years. The opening splash page is a busy, but not atypical of Toth's DC issues. The rest of the story is drawn with great care and craftsmanship, including several detailed crowd scenes. Toth's aliens look as menacing as they are strange, contributing to this impressive effort. This story has been reprinted in House of Secrets #98. Other artists in this issue include George Roussos, Mort Meskin and Howard Purcell. This is number 2 of 8 House of Mystery issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
