Praise

“A collection of rarely seen gems that are not to be missed!…If the Alex Toth Genius series included everything-but-the-kitchen-sink, you could consider this volume the kitchen sink…a 294-page monster.” —Cinema Sentries

Treasures Retold is the type of book a completist like me really enjoys. It’s all the little stuff that slipped through the cracks of his career histories. There are some full stories reprinted from the comics and others from the original art. There’s advertising work, behind the scenes animation art, and some genuinely informative text pages from Bruce Canwell. There’s a tendency to look at this type of collection as being of lesser material but in reality, it’s all part of the Alex Toth story. The only way you’ll ever understand an artist at his peak is to see him working in his valleys, to see the parts that got lost over the years, to see books like Treasures Retold: The Lost Art of Alex Toth.” —Forces of Geek

“The Library of American Comics has put together an exciting and insightful new companion volume to their Eisner Award-winning Alex Toth: Genius trilogy (Genius Illustrated, Genius Isolated, Genius Animated)…The title, Treasures Retold: The Lost Art of Alex Toth, is a bit of an understatement. The book is a superb mix of material, and it continues the investigation into the person behind the art as well.” —J.C. Vaughn
