Magnus Robot Fighter #28 - non-attributed Russ Manning art, mis-attributed Manning reprint

Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #28, 1969 - Mis-attributed in comic book guides as a Russ Manning reprint, this issue instead features new material. Curiously, the pages appear to have been laid out by Manning, including the interior page shown below. Sadly, Paul Norris' attempts at maintaining the integrity of the layouts mostly falter.  His pencils lack the level of skill and precision of his more esteemed colleague. Manning did illustrate the first twenty-two issues of this series. See today's posts or more Manning or Magnus Robot Fighter issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
