Queen of the West Dale Evans #3 - non-attributed Russ Manning art, mis-attributed Alex Toth art

Queen of the West Dale Evans #3 - silver age western comic book cover
Queen of the West Dale Evans v1 #3, 1955 - While teaching at a school for girls, Dale hears of a theft and proceeds to investigate. Russ Manning illustrates the first tale of his lengthy run on the series. Like much of his early work, the drawings are finely detailed but vary in degree of skill. His clean yet varied layouts make up for most of it, including an emphasis on settings and backgrounds. Comic book guides wrongly state this issue has Alex Toth (it doesn't), but also fail to give Manning his due. This is number 1 of 15 Queen of the West Dale Evans issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning, Toth or Queen of the West Dale Evans issues. See also this blog's Manning checklist or Toth checklist.
