Toth Luck

Saturday Leftover Day.

As long as I am doing DC horror, here are some of the stories by Alex Toth I collected. I admit that I am quite partial to Toth's early work, the stuff he disavowed after everyone stole from it. And some of his later work is too arty for my taset. But the Fox story here, is one of the best designed things I have ever read and it is full of clever tricks that can only be used in comic books.

When Johnny Came Home

Friday Comic Book Day.

Johnny Craig was one of the masters of EC. He often wrote his own stories and it showed. Here he is much later in life, working on a Denny O'Neil story in The Witching Hour.  One fo the things of these seventies and eighties DC titles is that they produced so much stuff, that indicidual stories are never remembered.
