Wyatt Earp v2 #11, 1960 - An outlaw gang of ex-soldiers tries to take over Tombstone, making enemies of both Wyatt Earp and the Clantons. Russ Manning's art is slightly diminished by less detail than usual, particularly in the backgrounds. Still, the drawings, layouts and overall pacing meet expectations. The artist's second tale, of a newly arrived city slicker, is equally entertaining. A climactic showdown occurs toward the end (pages 7-9), drawn with  bold dramatic lighting and stark contrasts. This is number 11 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 Russ Manning checklist.
