Queen of the West Dale Evans #20 - Russ Manning art


Queen of the West Dale Evans v1 #20, 1958 - Tracking a pair of stagecoach robbers, Dale and Curley reach their final destination: an abandoned house reported to be haunted. His final work on the series, Russ Manning illustrates the tale quite capably. Although confined to a six-panel grid, each page is varied and thoughtfully composed. The majority of panels are framed, except for a sequence of memories set in open, amorphous shapes (see interior page below. Other artists in this issue include Nicholas Firfires. This is number 15 of 15 Queen of the West Dale Evans issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Queen of the West Dale Evans issues.
