Written by the Eisner Award-winning team of Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell Genius, Isolated includes many examples of Toth's art, from his earliest stories at DC in the 1940s, his defining work at Standard, his incomparable Zorro comics in the 1950s, examples from his thousands of drawings for animations studios, through his mature - and some say best – work, such as Bravo For Adventure, in the 1970s and 80s. A special section collects, for the first time, the complete Jon Fury pages that Toth produced while in the army, a section that alone is worth the price of admission. Alex Toth was more than a unique and influential artist. He was a keenly insightful philosopher about comics, cartooning, and animation – with opinions on how they are created as opposed to how he felt they should be created. He wasn't shy about expressing those thoughts, whether in scathing, personal letters, essays for publication, or letters to the editor. To flesh out the complete story of his life and art, Mullaney and Canwell have conducted wide-ranging interviews with dozens of Toth's peers, friends, and family members.
