We thought we were "officially" Toth's web site before -- Alex sent this new logo via post card for his web site and future 'personalized' post cards. Our reaction? Drop dead awestruck!

Toth on style

      Contributed by:tothfans on Wed, February 4, 2004 / 12:02am CST in News

In this latest column, Toth gives some tips to us Tyros on observing style. Some good advice all ‘inkdippers’ should listen to. Sense of style you

"Page of the Day" on Hiatus.

      Contributed by:tothfans on Sat, November 1, 2003 / 12:11am CST in News

Hey folks. In case you didn't notice, I did not post any "Page of the Day" content this week. So your are probably wondering "what is going on?"

Well, my job has been keeping me very, very busy and I have not been able to find any spare time to scan and/or post them. Thus rather than continue to present an empty calendar page with no image, I thought it would be better to put the

The Vanguard!

      Contributed by:tothfans on Tue, July 8, 2003 / 12:07am CDT in News

It's got all the things Toth loves -- the 1930s, offshore gambling gangsters, a complicated mystery, and a hero worth drawing. And, amazingly enough, as Our Hero tells it, he was a reject. True! It's "The Vanguard", and even if you've read it before you've never seen it like this, with notes from The Man himself, so read on...

      Contributed by:tothfans on Sun, June 1, 2003 / 12:06am CDT in News

"If I Were King" I would want to know "Who Is Haunting The Haunted Chateau?" so I could live in my castle in peace. Perhaps, if you read Toth's latest notes "The Wings of Jealous Gods" will settle down and we'll have some peace and quiet...
