Batman by Alex Toth

January 4, 2021|In General

It’s just a sketch. 40 years old and fading. But nothing of its power has diminished. Few people could distill a drawing down to its essence as well as Alex Toth. Running across something like this is always a welcome surprise. Like finding a sapphire on the sidewalk.

And before it faded completely way, I wanted to bring it back if I could.
