Magnus Robot Fighter #11 - Russ Manning art


Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #11, 1966 - When roving wolfpacks destroy North Am's food supplies, Magnus enlists the aid of a woman named Danae and her intelligent Neo-animals. Unlike previous issues, Russ Manning has opportunity to draw a variety of animals more commonly found in his work on Tarzan. Not surprisingly, he takes on the artistic chores handily. The most interesting panel occurs toward the end, as people and animals alike battle a robotic horde (page 22). This story was later reprinted in Magnus Robot Fighter #37. This is number 11 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.
