I've also been spending some time over at tothfans.com, the official site of the great Alex Toth. I've been linked to it here forever now, but hadn't actually spent a lot of time browsing it, until this morning. One of the most interesting features on the site is the "Annotated Toth" section, which contains complete stories, illustrated and in some cases written as well, by Toth with commentary on each page. He also comments on a couple of Mort Meskin stories...fascinating reading, especially if you like Meskin's work as much as I do. And if you don't know who he is, it's a great way to check out some of his comics work. The two most recent annotated stories are two from 1970, the House of Mystery days. Both are kinda sabotaged by rotten coloring, which Toth never fails to point out, but the art (especially in "Turner's Treasure") is excellent. Wonder what he'd think of Lee Loughridge?
