77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1211 - Russ Manning art


77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics v2 #1211, 1961 - Russ Manning takes over this series, picking up where Alex Toth left off. Of his three capably drawn efforts, the story of a carnival plagued by mysterious accidents is the most visually interesting. The opening panel sets a festive tone, complete with colorful posters and stringing lights. Manning's other tales are more subdued, but equally sharp and distinct in their renditions. The inside front cover serves as a contents page, using some interior story panels as art. An alternate version of this issue replaces the back cover ad with a untitled Manning page (Kookie learns how to surveil a car). This is number 1 of 6 Sunset Strip issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or 77 Sunset Strip issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
