Shades of Alex Toth!!! Highly Recommended. By Frank Robbins. Frank Robbins’ masterpiece, one of the all-time greatest action/adventure newspaper comic strips. One look at it reveals artwork that looks SO much like Alex Toth--like the best of Alex Toth. Imagine if Alex Toth was drawing Steve Canyon--lots of action in the sky, beautiful damsels in distress and bad girls. That's it! Not sure who influenced who, but this is exciting work, with great action sequences. "One of the most important adventure strips ever to grace newspapers."

Frank Robbins’ masterpiece, one of the all-time greatest action/adventure newspaper comic strips. One look at it reveals artwork that looks SO much like Alex Toth--like the best of Alex Toth.

Stories are “What's My Name?,” “A Little Birdie Told Me,” “It's a Snap,” “Death at the Opera,” “There's No Hiding Place,” “The Car Thief,” “Project Heat-Barrier,” and “Hazard vs Hawkes.”

Reproduced entirely from original King Features press proofs. Introduction by Daniel Herman.

Frank Robbins is a shining example of an artist's artist. I've read time and again as later comic greats mention Robbins as one of their most important influences. Yet in the fan world of comics, he's scarcely recognized, only by the oldest of the old guard fans. But there's a reason we now have seven collections of his work, and even if you are just picking up on it, this is a great place to start. Robbins had a 67-year career, inlcuding work for NBC and at Radio Music Hall (murals) in NYC. He worked for the prestigous magazines Life, Look and The Saturday Evening Post, RKO Studios, and even had his work mounted in the Metropolitan Museum of Art AND The Whitney and Walker Museums. But despite all this, what he's best known for is what he did in comic books and comic strips. Like the collection here!
