Annie Oakley and Tagg #13 - Russ Manning art

Annie Oakley and Tagg v1 #13, 1957 - Two young boys foil a stagecoach robber with a bag of salt and a lot of luck. Despite this short story being sandwiched between two features, Russ Manning does a superlative job with only four meager pages. There's no lack of detail, especially in the backgrounds and outdoor scenery. The pacing and layouts are well organized, streamlined and like many Manning stories, typically enjoyable to read. Dan Spiegle's two stories are equally commendable. This is number 1 of 1 Annie Oakley and Tagg issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Annie Oakley and Tagg issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
