Gene Autry and Champion #118 - Russ Manning art


Gene Autry and Champion v1 #118, 1958 - A novice deputy gets his chance to bring in a dangerous outlaw, and his friends shadow him to ensure nothing goes wrong. At only four pages, this is one of the shortest Russ Manning western tales I’ve seen. Regardless, his efforts are more than capable. The layouts have a clear, concise design and the panel sequences are comfortably paced. In general, Manning's drawings are comparable to his numerous other cowboy comics from the same era. This is number 1 of 1 Gene Autry and Champion issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Gene Autry issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.

  1. Champion had his own book in the early fifties, for about 20 issues, with nice painted cover art.
