Wyatt Earp v2 #9 - Russ Manning art

Wyatt Earp v2 #9 - dell western 1960s silver age comic book cover art
Wyatt Earp v2 #9, 1960 - Renegade indians, an old gold miner, and a terrified witness to a crime are just a few characters residing in this issue. Frequent close-ups of their faces establishes mood and intent, a hallmark of Russ Manning's work. Each of his three stories is drawn with conciseness and clarity. The opening tale, "Bushwhacker Country", has especially fine vistas and open spaces (see interior page below). Most impressive is page 9 panel 3, depicting a pair of bushwackers hidden in the darkened foliage. In the opening scene of "The Miner's Message", something rarely seen is placed on the lower right: the artist's initials. This is number 9 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.
