Captain Sindbad - Russ Manning art


Captain Sindbad (#100-77-309), 1963 - Adapting the MGM movie of the same name, this issue was one of many film properties licensed to Gold Key. The cover typically displays several movie stills, suggesting an authorized connection to the film. Russ Manning, no stranger to the adventure genre, handles the interior art with enthusiasm. All manner of exotic locales, elaborate costumes and fantastic creatures are lushly illustrated. Manning also uses patterns and ornamentation in many scenes, including architecture and interiors. This is number 1 of 1 Captain Sindbad issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
