Rex Allen #30 - Russ Manning art


Rex Allen v1 #30, 1958 - Helping his friends find a long lost gold mine, Rex Allen spies a gang of thieves ready to jump their claim. Large panels frame broad western vistas, adding to the excellent drawings by Russ Manning. A second tale, about an attempted train robbery, is less ambitious in setting but also engaging. While certain pages on "Forewarned" are loosely executed, both stories show the artist transitioning into a tighter, more streamlined style. This is number 5 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.
