Alex Toth -- As you may know by now, Alex Toth has died.

The image above represents not only one of my very favourite images of superheroes created in my lifetime, but one of the key images of my childhood. But back then it looked like this:

Either way it's a wonderful piece of art, but I do prefer to see the top version, with its unaltered Superman (I guess having him look more like an Alex Toth cartoon than the Curt Swan model that was standard at the time was considered too much of a change by the editors back then).

I just want to say thank you to one of the artists who made my childhood a joy, and who, in my adult years, I have come to realize is as vital and important a part of comics history as Jack Kirby, Bernard Krigstein, Gil Kane or Robert Crumb.

My deepest condolences to Alex Toth's family and friends.
