Young Love v3 #78 - Alex Toth art


Young Love v3 #78, 1970 - Pressured by her overbearing mother, Melanie pursues romance with a wealthy young man she has no feelings for. This four-part tale stretches across two different titles, unusual for the romance comics at the time. Alex Toth mostly sticks to a common six panel grid, but his drawings and layouts are more than capable. Vince Colletta's inks are typically simplistic but neither help nor hinder the pencils. Note Toth's masterful use of shadows on page 2, suggesting the somber tone of the scene (see interior page below). This story (later reprinted in Young Love #122continues in Secret Hearts #141. Other artists in this issue include John Celardo. See today's posts or more Toth or Young Love issues. See also this blog's Toth checklist.
