Magnus Robot Fighter #5 - Russ Manning art & cover

Russ Manning
Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #5, 1964 - Magnus witnesses the return on an old foe, just as a self-replicating robot threatens the world's power supply. Russ Manning's smooth linework accentuates the battles between man andf machine. Especially jarring is page 26, where a colorless panel simulates the white-hot incendiary flash of a robot's destruction. The Aliens secondary feature meets expectations, but what makes this issue stand out is Manning's one and only cover for the series. Simply designed, it nonetheless provides a welcome break from the more typical painted covers. This is number 5 of 21 Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints).
