My Greatest Adventure #77 - Alex Toth art

My Greatest Adventure v1 #77, 1963 - Landing in South America via sailboat, three travelers stumble upon primitive tribes with technologically advanced weapons. Despite some ridiculous-looking imagery (such as the trio being used as human bowling pins), Alex Toth does a largely capable job with the art. He maintains a fine level of detail throughout the pages. The jungle settings in particular are filled with lush, textural backgrounds. Other artists in this issue include Lee Elias, Carmine Infantino, Murphy Anderson, Gene Colan and Paul Parker. This is number 4 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.
