Sea Hunt #4 - Russ Manning art


Sea Hunt v1 #4, 1960 - Diver Mike Nelson is hired as a stunt double for a film, only to find the production plagued with suspicious accidents. Russ Manning begins an admirable run, lending his smooth linework and streamlined layouts to the series. The first story is slightly better than the second, perhaps due to its darker theme and settings. Kudos to Manning for capturing actor Lloyd Bridges' likeness as well. The contents page on the inside front cover uses some of the interior panels. This is number 1 of 8 Sea Hunt issues with Manning art and/or covers.
