Intimate Love #26 - Alex Toth art


Intimate Love v1 #26, 1954 - Uniquely told from a man's perspective, an aspiring journalist photographs his ideal woman, only to lose her in the bustling crowd. Artistically, Alex Toth delivers arguably his best romance tale of the era. His draftsmanship is extraordinary, depicting the characters with individual and expressive features (see interior page below). His precise lifework is enhanced by Mike Peppe, who's inks reinforce pattern and texture throughout the pages. The layouts and sequencing are masterful, contributing to compelling and efficient visual storytelling. Toth also draws two adequately drawn single pages, both offering dating advice to teenage girls. Other artists in this issue include Vince Colletta, Art Saaf and John Celardo. This is number 4 of 4 Intimate Love issues with Toth art and/or covers.
