Hot Rod Noir -- Alex Toth Hot Wheels Comic Book Scans

Hot Wheels Alex Toth case of the curious classic

I have always been curious to read the Hot Wheels comics drawn by Alex Toth, but they've never been reprinted and I don't want them badly enough to spend a ton of dough on eBay.

Fortunately, the Fortress of Fortitude blog has solved that problem by sharing this copy of Hot Wheels #5 with all of us!

The cool thing about this comic is the unusual noir-ish treatment given to a comic that kind of sounds silly. Alex Toth always put 1000% into his comic book art. I mean, just look at some of these panels:

I would never, ever in my whole frikkin' life think some piece of junk called HOT WHEELS THE COMIC BOOK would yield such Tothian goodness. Thanks you, Sherm, for showing us this. Wonderful work, as ever.

BTW, if you are ever at a comics convention and see Irwin Hasen at his table -- ask Irwin if he's selling his bound copies of letters & drawings from Alex Toth.
