Magnus Robot Fighter #2 - Russ Manning art


Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #2, 1963 - A robotic figure called Mekman kidnaps the human government leaders and replaces them with identical, artificial people. Russ Manning's art for the second issue is representative of his clean, crisp style. His figure drawings seem more noteworthy this issue, from the battle between two Magnuses (pages 24-27) to his lovely rendition of Leeja and Magnus (see interior page below). The Aliens continue as a back-up feature, equally well drawn by Manning. This story was later reprinted in Magnus Robot Fighter #32. This is number 2 of 21 Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints).
