Wyatt Earp v2 #8 - Russ Manning art


Wyatt Earp v2 #8, 1959 - In the most unusual Wyatt Earp tale yet, a gang called "The Harlequins" commits crimes disguised as circus clowns. As a result, Russ Manning's drawings are more visually interesting than the usual western fare (see interior page below). On the bottom of page 3, the artist skillfully combines three scenes in a single panel: the arrival of Wyatt and his deputy, the aftermath of failed getaway and the thief's horse run amok. In a separate Manning story, a salesman plots to steal his company's money. Some panels are more detailed than others, but the stagecoach robbery scenes on pages 8-9 are notable for their depth and composition. This is number 8 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.
