The Vanguard!


      Contributed by:tothfans on Tue, July 8, 2003 / 12:07am CDT in News

It's got all the things Toth loves -- the 1930s, offshore gambling gangsters, a complicated mystery, and a hero worth drawing. And, amazingly enough, as Our Hero tells it, he was a reject. True! It's "The Vanguard", and even if you've read it before you've never seen it like this, with notes from The Man himself, so read on...

A Royal Welcome For This Week's 'AnnoToths'!


      Contributed by:tothfans on Sun, June 1, 2003 / 12:06am CDT in News

"If I Were King" I would want to know "Who Is Haunting The Haunted Chateau?" so I could live in my castle in peace. Perhaps, if you read Toth's latest notes "The Wings of Jealous Gods" will settle down and we'll have some peace and quiet...


Biplanes, UFOs and Death!
