Sea Hunt #5 - Russ Manning art

Sea Hunt v1 #5, 1960 - Russ Manning draws both features and provides a small illustration for a single page text story. In the first tale, diver Mike Nelson tests a new underwater camera, running afoul of foreign agents. The second is decidedly more dramatic, opening with a disastrous train wreck. Most of the scenes occur at night, prompting the artist to use heavy areas of black to full effect. Manning overall delivers a fine job on this tv-related series. This is number 2 of 8 Sea Hunt issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Sea Hunt issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
