The Toth Estate and Family have launched "The Alex Toth Store".

Dana Palmer (one of Toth's children) told us, "We have been working on the placement of some of Dad's artwork onto doodle pads, t-shirts, etc..  and feel the line is simple, clean and will be very popular amongest Dad's fans. the goal would be that any funds collected from the sale of these pieces could ultimately begin a scholarship fund at some point and/or assist the family with future projects."

More can be found on the store descripton.. "This site is dedicated to our father, the late cartoonist Alex Toth, who has left his presence behind within the wonderful body of work he created. This site will not only enable friends, family and fans to own something fun with his work and name on it, but also help to continue the large project of archiving his original works. Ultimately, the family is also dedicated to one day creating a scholarship in his name. Thank you for your interest! Dana Palmer, Carrie Morash, Eric Toth, Damon Toth. Website Design by Vivian Procopio."

I have placed a link at the top of the site to get you quickly to the store from everywhere on the site.

So pick up some merchandise Toth fans. The store is open now!

Hey All,

After being behind all summer, I finally have a new "page of the day" story for everyone. This is the Warren classic "The Hacker's Last Stand" and was contributed by Roberto Zaghi.

Thanks Roberto!

 Some time in late 1969(?) or 1970, DC comics and ABC created product tie-in comic books and cartoon episodes based on the famous and very popular Mattel toys.

Hotwheels Cartoon

Rumor has it that the cartoon was canceled because it was not much more than a 1/2 hour commercial. As we know Toth designed the characters and created some of his best comic book art in the DC comic book.

Here is the Hotwheels Cartoon opening theme and some small scans of some Toth Newspaper Comic Strip Ads.

Unfortunately not much Toth art in the opening theme bit. It's more like a commercial than an opening theme. If this opening is any indication of the show, I can see why in the "dark ages" of TV that they had some issues with it. Now of course everything is a big product blur; practically every cartoon has toys and vice-versa.

It would be nice to see an episode of this cartoon. IMDB details for the show.

Also as a special bonus, the Mostly Ghostly Music Sharing Blaaahhhggg!!! has a download link to the ghastly tie-in album (which includes the Skyhawks cartoon theme). Who knew they had music too?

 


New code is really bad, huh?

Ok, Perhaps my new code is a total failure.

No hard feelings on my part if you tell me so.

The site activity totaly dropped off after the new site code was put in place. Some people report having problems, and I'm not able to recreate them on my side to fix them.

The old forum is still available if people want to tell me what's wrong and I'll try and fix it. Or vote if I should just dump it and go back to the old code.

Let me know your thoughts the old forums here...

Sorry if I'm the last to hear this, as I see we lost Dave back in early March, but the Chicago Tribune published the news in their weekly obituary round-up only yesterday (April 6, 2008).

I'm very saddened to hear Dave was so sick and has succumed to his Lukemia, it's a sad loss to the comic world, I'll miss his work.
