About the Author
Born in New York City in 1928, Alex Toth attended what is now the School of Visual Arts and broke into the comic book field as a teenager. During his sixty-year professional career, he became known as the "artists' artist"--he became very much like his great hero, Noel Sickles--the guy all the others wanted to draw like. In the 1960s he entered the animation field and became equally well-known and respected for his groundbreaking designs for Space Ghost and The Herculoids, among other series.
Reviews
"What Mullaney and Canwell have done here is nothing short of wonderful. They've presented a well chosen selection of the first full decade of Toth's career, arguably his most creative period, in a beautifully designed volume that conveys the artist's evolution - an astonishingly brief transition that happened in barely five years - from talented beginner to absolute master." --Howard Chaykin, The Los Angeles Review of Books
