Young Romance #163 - Alex Toth art

Young Romance #163

Young Romance v1 #163, 1969 - Embittered by the husband who left her, a woman tells her teenage daughters to stay away from men altogether. Straightforwardly drawn, Alex Toth adheres to a six panel grid on most of the pages. His drawings within the panels are carefully constructed. He also employs silhouetted shadows to sometimes depressing effect. One scene that seems to stand out is the surreal montage on page 5, depicting lovers at differing viewpoints. Dick Giordano's inks are adequate, retaining the intent of Toth's pencils. This story (later reprinted in Young Love #114) continues into the next issue. Other artists in this DC silver age romance comic include Ric Estrada and Vince Colletta. Cover by Nick Cardy. This is number 1 of 2 Young Romance issues with Toth art and/or covers (not including reprints). Find >this issue or more >Toth or >Young Romance issues on ebay.
