Magnus Robot Fighter #14 - Russ Manning art


Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #14, 1966 - Strange bubbles emanate from a newly arrived meteorite, causing all robots in their path to enlarge and run amok. Magnus gets help from an adventurous group of boys known as the Outsiders, who appeared in previous issues. Despite the display of gigantic menaces, Russ Manning opts for mostly medium-sized panels, which diminish the sense of scale. That aside, the artwork is as streamlined and engaging as previous issues. Manning's back-up story is brief but equally well drawn. This is number 14 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.
