77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics #1263 - Russ Manning art

77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics #1263 dell tv 1960s silver age comic book page art by Russ Manning
77 Sunset Strip / Four Color Comics #1263, 1962 - Laid up with a broken leg, Kookie sees a murder committed through his amateur telescope. In a plot not dissimilar to Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, Russ Manning continues to grace the series with his crisp, smooth drawing style. Perhaps his best work of the issue is the large opening panel to "Where is Aunt Jennie?". This scene of an affluent suburb nicely foreshadows the trouble to come. This is number 2 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.
