Official Alex Toth website : News : Some reviews of 'Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth'


Here are some reviews of "Genius, Illustrated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth". You can read the complete reviews by following the links.

"Now available from IDW Publishing and The Library of American Comics is Genius, Illustrated - the middle entry in a three volume project that examines the life and career of the undeniably great and simultaneously vastly unappreciated artist Alex Toth. Written and compiled by Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell, Genius, Illustrated gathers original comics pages, storyboards, animation model sheets, advertising art, correspondence, and sketchbook pages, and combines them with a detailed and touching biography to form the only truly definitive work on one of the most talented and quixotic men in comics history."

"It may only be February, but we already have a very strong candidate for the best archival comics work of the year.

Following on from its 2011 companion Genius Isolated, Genius Illustrated tells the story of the second half of the life and career of perhaps comics' greatest iconoclast and its strongest advocate for the "less is more" school of comics art. This book spans the later years of Alex Toth's life, from 1957 to his death in 2006, and thus presents the greatest artwork from the greatest period of the life of one of the most incomparable cartoonists of our time."
