Secret Hearts #141 - Alex Toth art


Secret Hearts v1 #141, 1971 - Falling for a handsome young Latino, Melanie draws the ire of her parents and her entire community. Continued from Young Love v3 #78, Alex Toth's minimal approach belies his greater emphasis on layout and storytelling. Most pages and panels are purposefully designed. Notice page 3 panel 1, where a car cigarette lighter nicely illuminates the new love interest (see interior page below). This story (later reprinted in Young Love #123continues in Secret Hearts #142Other artists in this issue include Ric Estrada and Dick Giordano. This is number 1 of 4 Secret Hearts issues with Toth art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Toth or Secret Hearts issues. See also this blog's Alex Toth checklist.
