Sea Hunt #10 - Russ Manning art

Sea Hunt v1 #10, 1961 - In the opening tale, a wealthy and eccentric client hires Mike Nelson to teach skin diving aboard a recreational pirate ship. The unusual setting is a welcome change from previous issues, allowing Russ Manning the opportunity to draw more than the standard sea vessels. The artist's clarity of line and fluid layouts enhance both stories, but "Pirates' Holiday" stands out as the more enjoyable read. Like all the other issues in this series, a Lloyd Bridges photo cover ties the comic to the television series. This is number 6 of 8 Sea Hunt issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Sea Hunt issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
