House of Secrets #123 - Alex Toth art


House of Secrets v1 #123, 1974 - Unexpectedly transported to the time of  Camelot, a lowly ice cream man wows King Arthur and his knights with his delicious concoctions. With a nod to Mark Twain, this farcical tale has its darker moments, deftly illustrated by Alex Toth. His noble drawings are splendidly laid out and organized (see interior page below), contributing to the overall excellent visual storytelling. Other artists in this issue include Leandro Sesarego and Frank Robbins (cover). This is number 8 of 8 House of Secrets issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints).

  1. Far out! I didn't know about this issue. I was only aware of it because it had a cover drawn by Frank Robbins, something of a rarity.

  2. Robbins had a strange, but recognizable style. He had some interesting work on DC's Plop, Detective Comics and the Shadow as well.
