    Alex Toth - The Unseen #5 Splash Page 1 Original Art (Standard Comics, 1952). When Alex Toth left DC Comics in the early fifties, he found a new home at Standard Comics. Toth had perfected his storytelling approach and his page design and staging were the best in the comic book field. Standard Comics tried to adopted Toth's trend-setting techniques to all their titles, and his work became the model for Standard's "house style." Few artists could equal the work of the master himself. This fantasy page highlights Toth's sense of composition and striking use of shadows. Standard often numbered the premiere issues of their titles as number five, so this work actually hails from the first issue of The Unseen. This page was both penciled and inked by Toth so it is a superb example of his brilliance. A touch of Toth's blue pencils shows from beneath the inks. The image area of the art is 12" x 18" and the art is in Excellent condition.
