A grand week on the Tothfans site, just in time to be "thankful" for Thanksgiving -- a feast for the eyes and mind to beat the feasts for the stomach! Alex has done the next 17-page "dream" sequence of "Bravo for Adventure", dialoguing with ol' Dave Cook about design, free association and other assorted fun.

PLUS -- longtime Toth friends and fans Luca Biagini and Jim Vadeboncoeur have shared their collections with us. You can see their pieces of original Toth art in the "Luca Gallery" and "Vadeboncoeur Gallery".

Our thanks and mille grazie to Jim and Luca for sharing these fine pieces with us.

It's here!!! The first four pages of Toth's original masterpiece "Bravo for Adventure" have arrived for the 'Annotated Toth'! Toth starts with the introductory story "Who is Jesse Bravo?" that he did for the Dragon Lady Press printing. In this 'Annotated', Toth banters with Dave Cook about the filmic influences, design & fashions as well as addresses the confusion around the pages sequences, A-B-D-C!

Thanks to Toth, Dave Cook and John Hitchcock, we can see the vision behind 'Bravo'. Enjoy!

Wow! Now we're really "official" -- Alex has joined us for his own platform! As he often quotes, "Unhappy is the know-it-all with no one to tell it to." Well, now, he has his own web magazine without any interference from editors (although he still has to face the Forums).

Check out the first three offerings under Articles -- "Let's Face It", "Now Then", and "Who Cares? I do!" He also followed up his memories of Sol Harrison and "what to leave out" with an "addendum". The beginnings of what promise to be a regular feature exclusive to the ‘Toth Fans’ web site. You not only saw it here first -- you won't read it anywhere else!

Memoir: Sol Harrison and knowing “what to leave out”

At times it’s to imagine that Toth was not born with his clean and powerful style right out of the gate. But as this latest postcard from Toth shows he also learned his lessons from others like Sol Harrison and worked hard to apply them - and apply them he did to legendary effect!

Along with the memoir is an image from a section of an envelope that Toth uses as an example for us young Tyros to learn from. It shows image reduction and helps us see “what to leave out” or get to the pure form as it were. A Toth cover from ‘The Film Journal’ has also been include to further demonstrate this principle.

So take a look, learn and enjoy…

SPECIAL ANOUNCMENT: It's official folks. Alex has given his blessing to the site! From now on 'Toth Fans' is the one and only "Official" Alex Toth website! A special thanks needs to go out to Dave Cook and John Hitchcock. Without them it never would have happened. Thanks guys!

So in celebration we have a new URL too! No more goofy URL that you have to bookmark to remember just type - www.tothfans.com and you are here! As easy at that. Not to hard to remember. The old URL will continue to work, but why use it?

And that's not all. We also have content updates for you as well. An October 2002 Gallery update, which includes a sweet Toth ‘Zorro’ drawing contributed by Brian Postman and John Hitchcock contributed some mind blowing pieces from his great collection as well. Although not all of the 'Space Angel' art in the Gallery is Toth's it still has his design work all over it. Go check it out and post your options on this rare work in the Forums.
