Western Roundup #12 - Russ Manning art


Western Roundup v1 #12, 1955 - Roy Rogers, Gene Autry and Johnny Mack Brown all feature prominently in this 100 page Dell giant. Russ Manning is tasked with a short tale starring Dale Evans. In her story, a dangerous fugitive is seen in the area, prompting her to check in on some new neighbors. Manning's smooth, friendlier line seems more appropriate for the only female star of the series. Tellingly, this early work by the artist shows more enthusiasm than skill. This is number 2 of 10 Western Roundup issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Western Roundup issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
