Alex Toth

As a follow up to the post below this one, this is a good online collection of Toth's work:

And this is an article that will offer some insight to a very difficult artist.

Why spend all this time on Toth? Thats a good question to start with. Look at one of his pages. Try to look at it next to a page from any other comic artist. Reduce both their size, more and more. Toth's will be legible even at small magnification. The other artist may not.

 Look at the variety of camera angles in Toth's work. They are more varied and more unusual than any other artist. They are original to him.
More on this fascinating, infuriating man later on.
