Magnus Robot Fighter #10 - Russ Manning art

Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #10, 1965 - The madman Xyrkol returns, unleashing his sky-borne Octo-Rob to topple city skyscrapers. Like previous issues, Russ Manning fills this futuristic world with inventive technologies and architecture. The most impressive scenes show the widespread panic among the masses (pages 1-4) and the newly arrived mysterious visitors (see interior page below). The shorter Aliens tale has less flair and excitement but meets expectations nonethless. This is number 10 of 21 Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Manning or Magnus Robot Fighter issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
