Rex Allen #29 - Russ Manning art

Rex Allen #29, 1958 - Only the second time Russ Manning drew the lead feature in this title, "Battle Canyon" is one of the artist's better efforts. An outlaw gang uses military practices to make daring thefts, while Rex Allen searches for their elusive hideout. Manning's opening splash is not as compelling as the previous issue, but many other pages compensate. His scenes of rocky topography and cascading waterfalls serve as stunning backdrops for the characters. The climactic large panel on the top of page 16 is the high point among many terrific pages. This is number 4 of 5 Rex Allen issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Rex Allen issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist.
