Wyatt Earp v2 #5 - Russ Manning art


Wyatt Earp v2 #5, 1959 - A lazy freeloader and spoiled brat make trouble for the marshal in separate stories. The first, with its larger opening panel and more varied scenes, is slightly better drawn than the second. Both tales are less violent than the usual western fare, highlighting Russ Manning's approachable style. The characters are thoughtfully designed and distinguishable. A third story (not by the artist) suffers greatly by comparison. This is number 5 of 13 Wyatt Earp issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Wyatt Earp issues.
