On DVD: Simplicity: The Life and Art of Alex Toth

Another plug I forgot to mention...You must, MUST go out and buy the Space Ghost & Dino Boy DVD. In it there is an 80 minute long documentary called "Simplicity: The Life and Art of Alex Toth". This is an excellent documentary on the life of one of the greatest comic book illustrators of all time. Through photos, rare artwork, interviews with family, friends and colleagues ( including everone from Irwin Hasen, to Joe Kubert, to Paul Pope ) we get a revealing portrait of the man and his art. This is no fluff piece, this really reveals a lot about the man and who he was. It's probably one of the best documentaries I've seen yet on a comic book artist outside of "Crumb". Run out to your local DVD store and buy it today!!

Until reading your blogs, never realized how much you admired Toth.

I do wonder, though, how Toth felt about the 'reimagined' Space Ghost on Comedy Central.
