Alex Toth

Biography

American cartoonist whose work spanned several decades. An only child of artistic and musical parents, he began doodling at the age of three. As he grew his pen and pencil were busy sketching the characters that appeared in his imagination as he listened to the radio. While studying illustration at the High School of Industrial Arts, he received his first paid assignment. After graduation he worked on "Heroic Comics" and was later hired in 1947 by yet another comics company. From 1954 to 1956 he fulfilled his military service. While stationed in Japapn, he drew and wrote a comic strip for the base newspaper. After his discharge from the Army he settled in Los Angeles and worked for Dell Comics. In 1965 he joined Hanna Barbera, producing animation and comic books. He subsequently added work for the major publishers of comics including Dell, Marvel, and others. In addition, he wrote and illustrated his own stories. His "Bravo for Adventure" was serialized in two separate issues of "The Rook" published by Warren Publications; it has been republished and translated into three languages.

Toth died on May 27, 2006 about a month shy of his 78th birthday.
