More About Toth And, Well, Just More About Stuff!
Tom Spurgeon , who has forgotten more about comics than most people will ever know, has compiled a brilliant page celebrating the life of career of Alex Toth. The page has an obituary along with some excellent images and links to blogs, tributes, news sites and more. You want to know why Toth was, and still is and always will be, held in the highest regards? Go and have a read of the outpouring of grief and see for yourself. I've said, in a few places, that, in my eyes, there were pioneers in the world of comic book art. Jack Kirby, Jim Steranko, Gil Kane, John Buscema, Jack Davis, Wally Wood, Neal Adams and many others. Then there was Alex Toth. For me he was always a cut above the pack and he'll always remain there. Michael Netzer has made me blush . Let me say right here and now that's no easy feat. Michael is one of the beautiful people and I'm proud to be able to call him pal. He's one of the few honest people left in the industry and it never ceases to amaze
