Setting the Standard: Alex Toth, 1952-1954

Widely considered one of the finest draftsmen to ever work in comics, the cantankerous Alex Toth cut a swath through almost every publisher. His early 1950s work for Standard Comics was one of his peaks: Equally adept at crime, horror, science fiction and war comics, he fashioned every page and every panel as a master class in sheer cartooning brilliance. In addition to reprinting the totality of Toth''s Standard output, Setting the Standard (edited by Supermen! and Four Color Fear's Greg Sadowski) includes a rare interview with the outspoken Toth.
