Treasures Retold: The Lost Art of Alex Toth
A blockbuster collection of rare and little seen stories and artwork by the legendary Alex Toth. Included are complete stories from the 1950s and beyond, recently discovered color animation storyboards and presentation drawings, sketches and doodles, industrial comics, and individual pages from obscure comics and magazines. It’s a treasure trove that makes a fitting companion to the three-time Eisner Award-winning Alex Toth: Genius trilogy.
“A collection of rarely seen gems that are not to be missed!…If the Alex Toth Genius series included everything-but-the-kitchen-sink, you could consider this volume the kitchen sink…a 294-page monster.”
“The Library of American Comics has put together an exciting and insightful new companion volume to their Eisner Award-winning Alex Toth: Genius trilogy…a superb mix of material.”
“An eye feast of words and pictures…Over 290 pages of eye popping, adventure, art, and creativity by Alex Toth. AMAZING stuff. This is an addition that every creative person must have in their personal library.”
“The type of book a completist like me really enjoys. It’s all the little stuff that slipped through the cracks of his career histories. There are some full stories reprinted from the comics and others from the original art. There’s advertising work, behind the scenes animation art, and some genuinely informative text pages from Bruce Canwell…The absolute best section though, is the one dealing with the artist’s Hanna-Barbera art. We get a full set of beautiful storyboards for Dino Boy and original art pages from a Space Ghost story drawn from a Mark Evenier script for Marvel. Lots of other H-B art as well!”
