Wyatt Earp v2 / Four Color Comics v2 #860 - Russ Manning art


Wyatt Earp v2 / Four Color Comics v2 #860, 1957 - Based on the tv western, this series features actor Hugh O' Brian on all its covers. Russ Manning begins his run on the title with two splendid tales. In the first, a gang of thieves terrorize Dodge City before taking refuge atop the highest mesa in the region. The second tale tells of an escaped convict bent on extracting revenge on the famous marshal. Both are exquisitely drawn, opening with large panels that firmly establish the town settings. An equally spacious scene occurs on page 9, revealing the hidden lair of criminals. This is number 1 of 13 Wyatt Earp issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Wyatt Earp issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
