    Description

    Alex Toth House of Secrets #123 Splash Page 1 Original Art (DC, 1974). Toth's bold signature and handwritten notes dominate this introductory page from a black-humor piece called "A Connecticut Ice Cream Man in King Arthur's Court." The featured character is the narrator, Abel, host of editor Joe Orlando's EC Comic-style reinvention of House of Secrets. Toth's choice of media involves a combination of felt markers, including a sharpie-type permanent ink and a Pentel-type water-soluble ink. The lines from the latter have aged to a very light brown and are more difficult to see. Accompanied by a well-preserved copy of the magazine. Mixed media over graphite on Bristol board with a 10" x 15" image area. Extensive fading. In Good condition.
