My Greatest Adventure #61 - Alex Toth art

My Greatest Adventure v1 #61, 1961 - In search of his missing colleague, an adventurer follows the same route and discovers the fabled, all-powerful Doom-Stone. Alex Toth's artwork overall meets expectations, but his renditions of an ape-like creature border on comedic. This is painfully evident on the title page, where two scientists observe the ape from afar. That aside, Toth puts forth effort into every panel, especially the smaller ones. This story was later reprinted in Phantom Stranger #15. Other artists in this issue include Dick Dillin, Sheldon Moldoff, Mort Meskin and Lee Elias. This is number 3 of 6 My Greatest Adventure issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or My Greatest Adventure issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
