All Star Western #58 - non-attributed Alex Toth art

All Star Western v1 #58, 1951 - Formerly All Star Comics, the series transitions into a western-themed comic, featuring and introducing the Trigger Twins and Strong Bow. Alex Toth begins his stint on the Roving Ranger, a lawman that travels where needed. A small town called Rapid River votes to become part of a larger county, but a band of vigilantes has other plans. Toth begins with a terrific opening splash, but subsequent pages are hampered by the poor inking job. The artist also omits too many details and relies too heavily on silhouetted figures. Other artists in this issue include Carmine Infantino. This is number 1 of 6 All Star Western issues with Toth art and/or covers.
