- Full Description
Of every comics story Alex Toth ever drew, the only one that he kept the complete original art to was Bravo for Adventure. This is a virtual "how-to" course in drawing comics. We see how he would draw all the detail in a scene, from thumbnails to pencils to inks--only to black it out in order to focus the reader's eye on what really counted. Also included are variant versions of the Bravo saga, dozens of never-before-seen pencil roughs, preliminary drawings, and story fragments, and twelve pages of Toth's own coloring for an edition that never saw print--until now.
This color work was freed from storage after 40 years--all of the coloring for what was intended to be Bravo's original 1975 first printing in France! It's like viewing Alex's work from every possible perspective--we see alterate splash pages, discarded ideas, creative genius at work and how it was all built upon for the final, complete story.
