Strange Adventures #12 - Alex Toth art


Strange Adventures v1 #12, 1951 - In the distant future, the planet Polaris breaks its pact with Earth by building an unauthorized, weaponized Thought Machine. Artistically, Alex Toth uses some odd layout configurations and panel designs. While potentially interesting, the inking mostly sanitizes the pencils. Even some of the larger panels (page 1, 7) seem static in composition. In general, Toth’s silver age DC work varies in quality. This story was later reprinted in From Beyond the Unknown #2. Other artists in this issue include Murphy Anderson and Carmine Infantino. Cover by Gil Kane. This is number 3 of 7 Strange Adventures issues with Toth art and/or covers.
