I've never seen much of his comic book work but I have always loved his design work on the original Space Ghost cartoons and Superfriends.

A giant has indeed passed. And, truly, we shall not see his like again. Not only an artist's artist, but a superb storyteller.

A master of the fine art of chiaroscuro (that's the interplay of B&W culture-hounds).

A very sad day indeed. Nobody did B&W better.

Check out the tothfans link (in Jason's1st post) for the Page a Day calendar - a huge resource of Toth art.

his economy of line always impressed me. he can create a lot of mood with so little on the page.

he also gives great interviews:
