    Alex Toth - Original Art for Adventures Into Darkness #5, page 1 (Better-Standard Publications, 1952). From the first issue of this classic horror title comes a great splash by the master of graphic design. A beautiful large art page, measuring approximately 14.75" x 22" with an image area of 17" x 12", this page is in excellent condition, with some interesting notes in the margins, including Toth's address and phone number and the note, "B-1130 3/21/52 pencils, inking, lettering J.", indicating the jobs for which Toth was to be paid. Clearly displaying the dynamic use of stark black and white for which Toth is noted, this is a prime page from a recognized master.
