New Noel Sickles reprint book - Scorchy Smith And The Art Of Noel Sickles

Fri, February 8, 2008

I suppose this is old news, but I'll post it for those folks who may not have heard. IDW is publishing Scorchy Smith And The Art Of Noel Sickles.

Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith Comic Strip Reprint book

Here is from the book's description: "Noel Sickles drew comics for three brief years, yet his groundbreaking work on the 1930s aviation adventure series Scorchy Smith is a milestone in the history of newspaper comic strips. Over the past 70 years, however, readers have seen only occasional excerpts of this seminal work. Now, IDW's Library of American Comics presents Scorchy Smith and The Art of Noel Sickles, a comprehensive, oversized volume that collects, for the first time, every Sickles Scorchy strip, from December 1933 through November 1936."

Alex Toth was a contibuter to the old reprints published by Nostalgia Press in the seventies. Now we will have 352 pages of Noel Sickles Scorchy Smith! Cool huh?

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.

We're back & no more ...

It's been a hard summer and fall for!

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 ( and also went permanently dark and unreachable.

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

So please update any bookmarks on your site to make sure it lists . ( 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!
