Just got the news that Alex Toth, one of the true masters of comic art, has passed away.
I had the pleasure, back when I was doing transcription work for TwoMorrows, to transcribe an interview with Toth... the work wasn't credited to me, as Alex had asked editor Jon Cooke not to let anyone else do the transcription, but it was a pleasure for me to forego my credit for the opportunity to hear the man speak.
I'd imagine it'd be too much to hope for that DC, at least, could put together a TPB collecting some of the best of Toth's work for them (maybe make a deal with Mattel to let the Hot Wheels issues be included in that TPB)... besides, geez, the guy deserved to have a "best of" volume produced years and years ago! I think that perhaps one Toth story was reprinted in the Greatest Batman Stories Ever Told TPB, and that's probably about it except for some stuff in the Super Friends TPB.
