Walt Disney Presents #3 - non-attributed Russ Manning art

Walt Disney Presents v1 #3, 1960 - The Swamp Fox, Texas John Slaughter and Elfego Baca were all featured in this short-lived Disney title. Not mentioned in most comic book guides are two separate drawings by Russ Manning. The first is a small illo for a one page Zorro text story, nicely designed without much fanfare. It hints at how splendidly the artist could have drawn the hero's adventures given the chance. "The Vanishing Longhorn" displays five Manning panels done in documentary style. The artist nicely designs them to make the most out of black and white reproduction. This is number 1 of 1 Walt Disney Presents issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Walt Disney Presents issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
