Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth by Dean Mullaney
Book DescriptionDean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell continue their comprehensive review of the life and art of Alex Toth in Genius, Illustrated. Covering the years from the 1960s to Toth's poignant death in 2006, this oversized 9.5" v 13" book features artwork and complete stories from Toth's latter-day work at Warren, DC Comics, Red Circle, Marvel, and his own creator-owned properties, plus samples of his animation work for Hanna-Barbera, Ruby-Spears, and others, as well as sketchbook pages, doodles, advertising art, and other rarities provided through the cooperation of Toth's family and his legion of fans. Two of Toth's best stories are reproduced complete from the original artwork: "Burma Skies" and "White Devil...Yellow Devil". A full-length text biography will chart the path from Toth's increasingly-reclusive lifestyle to his touching re-connection to the world in his final years. Fans of comics, cartoons, and all-around great artwork revere Alex Toth. See why Genius, Illustrated - along with its companion volume, 2011's Genius, Isolated - are being praised as the definitive examination of the life and art of The Master, Alex Toth. Volume 2 of a definitive three-volume series. "A high-water mark in the field of comic artist biography." (New York Journal of Books). "This is a great book...A very revealing and inspiring publishing achievement that all Toth fans will love." (The Animation Guild). "Under the hands of Bruce Canwell and Dean Mullaney, Genius Illustrated sets the absolute gold standard for deluxe artist biographies. There have been some wonderful comics history books released in the last few years, but this book surpasses them all in terms of its production values, its comprehensiveness and the quality of the biographical information presented. Alex Toth was one of the greatest artists ever to work in the comic art medium. This book merits the highest possible compliment: it's a worthy tribute to Toth." (Jason Sacks, Comics Bulleti).
