Hot Rods and Rare Toth
One of the cool things about artists like Alex Toth is that you can stumble across their work in what might seem the unlikeliest of places. About ten years ago my son-in-law gave me a small stack of motoring cartoon magazines, and in a couple of them there were some real gems. Here are two short stories not just drawn but also written by Alex Toth. The first is from CARtoons 26 (December 1965), and is a nice example of the growing influence of the Women's Movement:
The next is a three page short about the trials and tribulations of a corporate executive in the automobile industry, from Hot Rod Cartoons 6 (Sept 1965):
Hope you enjoyed seeing these as much as I did.
