GENIUS, ISOLATED: THE LIFE AND ART OF ALEX TOTH
Alex Toth (a & c) • Dean Mullaney & Bruce Canwell (Editors)
Alex Toth is revered as one of the greatest of all comics artists. Others laud his pioneering work in animation, including his groundbreaking designs for Space Ghost and The Herculoids. His work influenced countless professionals in both fields. Genius, Isolated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth is the first of a three-book set that will be the definitive statement on the restless genius and timeless legacy of Alex Toth.

Produced by the Eisner Award-winning team of Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell—who produced Scorchy Smith and the Art of Noel Sickles—Genius, Isolated is a lavishly illustrated book that includes the first biography of this giant figure. The book has been compiled with complete access to the family archives, and with the full cooperation of Toth’s children.

Toth fans and friends throughout the world have loaned original artwork reproduced in the entire series. Included are many examples of Toth’s art, from complete stories to rare pages, as well as an unfinished and unpublished penciled story from the early 1950s! The tome covers his earliest stories at DC in the 1940s, his defining work at Standard, his incomparable Zorro comics in the 1950s, and a special section collects, for the first time, the complete Jon Fury pages that Toth produced while in the army, a section that alone is worth the price of admission.

Alex Toth was more than a unique and influential artist. He was a keenly insightful philosopher about comics, cartooning, and animation—with opinions on how they are created as opposed to how he felt they should be created. He wasn’t shy about expressing those thoughts, whether in sometimes-scathing personal letters, essays for publication, or letters to the editor. To flesh out the complete story of his life and art, Mullaney and Canwell have spent more than a year conducting wide-ranging interviews with dozens of Toth’s peers, friends, and family members. With a special introduction by Mark Chiarello, Genius, Isolated is the beginning of a comics biography everyone will be talking about for years to come.
