Bravo For Adventure!


Bravo for Adventure is an obscure Alex Toth project which evoked the best Toth had to give to the comics page. A period setting, a dashing hero, and a wild adventure. The story was developed for overseas, but found publication in the United States tucked away in two issues of Warren's The Rook. The adventure was collected several years later by Dragon Lady Press, but after that nothing.

Soon IDW Publishing will be coming out with a new printing of the Toth classic, bringing some great vintage work about the olden day into the light of the modern world.

  1. I can't recommend this strip enough I picked up the Dragon Lady Press edition years ago (and after that the Warren Rook books not knowing they came first) - very much a strip by a great artist probably at his peek - evokes the 30s and films from those time to a tee.

    1. I agree this might the time when he was at his very best. It might even have been these stories which opened my eyes to the real greatness of Toth, an artist best seen in black and white.
