Some reviews of 'Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth'

Here are some reviews of "Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth". You can read the complete reviews by following the links.

"Now available from IDW Publishing and The Library of American Comics is Genius, Illustrated - the middle entry in a three volume project that examines the life and career of the undeniably great and simultaneously vastly unappreciated artist Alex Toth. Written and compiled by Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell, Genius, Illustrated gathers original comics pages, storyboards, animation model sheets, advertising art, correspondence, and sketchbook pages, and combines them with a detailed and touching biography to form the only truly definitive work on one of the most talented and quixotic men in comics history." Read more from John Parker at comicsalliance.com.

"It may only be February, but we already have a very strong candidate for the best archival comics work of the year.

Following on from its 2011 companion Genius Isolated, Genius Illustrated tells the story of the second half of the life and career of perhaps comics' greatest iconoclast and its strongest advocate for the "less is more" school of comics art. This book spans the later years of Alex Toth's life, from 1957 to his death in 2006, and thus presents the greatest artwork from the greatest period of the life of one of the most incomparable cartoonists of our time."

Another Try...

Ok, I decided to roll back to the code I released back in 2008 rather that have this whole site end up filled with spam.

I spend time to migrate the user accounts and cleaned up a few things. The logins are now your email address. If you forgot your password you can have a new one sent to you. if you don't remember which email address to login with, email me or simply create a new account. (email addresses and nicknames must be unique.).

Below is a quote post from when I released the code way back in 2008 before I rolled it back. It has a lot of cool features that let everyone participate much more than before. I hope people like it.

Thanks,

--Jeff

"After many hours of web development I present to you the new Tothfans version 2.0. This new Tothfans website code allows everyone to participate and contribute content of all sorts in a new and simpler way.

New features:
- Create galleries with images (called "image sets")
- Upload images to other people's image sets
- Post your own articles, news stories, etc. (called "posts")
- Comment on specific images, posts, image sets.
- New front page integrated forums (called "discussions")
- Avatars for your user account.

Think about it as a group contributed newsletter devoted to Alex Toth. Kinda like Wikipedia where you are the contributor. Imagine articles written by fellow tothfans discussing Toth's history, influences, etc. Everyone can contribute themselves rather than going through the hassle of sending me stuff.

Now there is one small catch to this Alex Toth website utopia - to make sure the website is not perverted and turned into a spam free-for-all, all articles go into a queue for approval before contributions appear on the site. So please be patient and allow me some time to review and approve content. My only goal is to keep the site free from spam, inappropriate content, defamation and flame wars.

If I may ask, please be brutally honest and prove some feedback to me on the website. There is still a bunch of rough edges that need smoothing. So, If anything is confusing, broken, or just plain sucks LET ME KNOW (please).

Tothfans has always been the great website it is thanks to all the fantastic and generous participation from far and wide. So let's keep it up and content make our website the best ever.

Sincerely,
Jeff Rose

P.S. Your old forum Password and your Username is the Email you had in the old forums. They will work to log in."

Yep, got it today. The five stories I listed in my prior post are in there. Reproduction isn't that great but they are certainly readable! It's not a lot of Toth but for $17 this 400+ page monster of Silver age art I believe is worth getting.

Well, I've scanned a page here or there to email to someone for reference but scanning the whole book would probably destroy the book binding. The way the book is put together to be able to get really good scans of every image you'd completely wreck the binding. Besides, that's a hell of a lot of scans and a website that would put all those images up would probably run into the same problem the original publisher had in the first place, a cease and desist order from H&B and probably DC as

Great Creepy pages. Interesting combo of the two artists. Leo did incredible work for Warren. I wish his work had caught on more here in the states. He did some freelance storyboarding at ILM, then later did work for Guillermo Del Toro on the first Hellboy movie. A very kind, softspoken old gentleman. Last I'd heard, he'd left L.A. and moved back to Europe. There was one incredible period piece he did for Eerie about two vampire twins. Great stuff! The work here Toth certainly made his
