We're back & no more tothfans.dynu.com ...

It's been a hard summer and fall for tothfans.com!

First, I had a bunch of issues with my internet hosting bandwidth going off-line multiple times, and then the company that hosts the domain name (tothfans.com and tothfans.dynu.com) also went permanently dark and unreachable.

I really thought I was going to lose tothfans.com domain name forever. So after a struggle of 6 days, and many phone calls and emails, tothfans.com is back online! Thanks godaddy.com and Tucows, Inc! *WHEW*

So please update any bookmarks on your site to make sure it lists www.tothfans.com . (tothfans.dynu.com is gone forever)

Thanks for the understanding everyone. --jeff

Darwyn Cooke has sent us his comic "The Alex" which he created to honor Alex Toth. If you missed this on free comic book day, it now has a home there on tothfans.

Thanks Darwyn!

Thanks also go to John Hitchcock for engaging Darwyn to share it with the site, and to Chris Ferguson for technical support and scanning the last few pages which got garbled in the email.

Ruben Procopio sent along some photos of the Toth panel from this year's San Diego Comic con for those who missed it.

The line-up on the panel was; Alex Gray, Jon Mefford, Mark Chiarello, Ruben Procopio, Damon Toth, Eric Toth, David Armstrong & John Hitchcock.

And if you have not yet seen the "Simplicity: The Life and Art of Alex Toth" documentary yet, do yourself a favor and go buy your copy of the Space Ghost DVD. The documentary alone makes it worth the price!


Benton Jew - collect Roy Rogers comic strip by Toth?

Hey All. Benton Jew brought up a fantastic idea and challenge to all us Toth collectors - to collect Toth run ghosting Mike Ahrens on the "Roy Rogers" strip.

Benton wrote,

"A few years ago I bought an original Roy Rogers daily that Alex had ghosted for a few weeks. It would be nice to see the series of Toth-drawn ones all together online. I'd like to put out a challenge to the Tothfans to see if we can collect them all together on the site. Perhaps a folder can be put up on the "gallery" page and members can gradually add to it as the missing pieces are found. Alex apparently ghosted "Roy Roger" for Mike Ahrens between 12-19-1960 to 1-12-1961."

We already have Benton's page, plus an old scan I got from who knows where.

So are we up to the challenge? Is it possible to collect them all?

If you have scans or copies, email them to me at tothfans ~at~ yahoo.com.

Last year's panel was super fantastic, so don't miss out on this event!
