Magnus Robot Fighter #8 - Russ Manning art


Magnus Robot Fighter v1 #8, 1965 - During the annual Weather Festival, an ancient battle-robot resurrects and takes over the weather control tower. A band of multi-ethnic kids called the Outsiders helps Magnus infiltrate the master control room. Russ Manning's artwork is made more distinctive due to scenes of colorful festivities (see interior page below) and wildly varied weather effects from tornadoes to blizzards. Note the unusual but effective stippling on Leeja's dress throughout the story. Manning's second tale has less flair but is well drawn regardless. This story was later reprinted in Magnus Robot Fighter #36. This is number 8 of 21 Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Magnus Robot Fighter issues with Manning art and/or covers (not including reprints).
