A fitting epitaph for one of the all-time greats of classic American comics, Alex Toth -- who died earlier this year -- Dear John contains 256 pages of, yes, doodles; but a doodle by Toth is not anything like a doodle by mere mortals such as you or I. But wait, there's much more. Included in this volume are many pieces of the voluminous twenty year correspondence carried out between Toth and co-author Hitchcock. And there are several auto-critiques by Toth of his own earlier work that make for interesting reading for anyone who works in the field. Needless to say, hardcore Toth fans will find this to be an essential offering, but anyone interested in getting a close up and personal look at one of comics' finest should definitely give this item the once over.
