Queen of the West Dale Evans #5 - Russ Manning art

Queen of the West Dale Evans v1 #5, 1955 - At the Double-A Ranch, a wealthy kid stays for the summer and runs afoul of a gang of thieves. Russ Manning's illustrative style looks less recognizable than previous issues. Some pages are better than others, suggesting another inker lending a hand. His page layouts are true-to-form, including an experimental use of logs as framing device (page 14). In general, Manning just falls short of meeting expectations. This is number 3 of 15 Queen of the West Dale Evans issues with Manning art and/or covers.
