Wyatt Earp v2 / Four Color Comics v2 #890 - Russ Manning art


Wyatt Earp v2 / Four Color Comics v2 #890, 1958 - Two fine stories by Russ Manning grace this second issue of the series. A young marshal learns some hard lessons in "Tin Star Trouble", while some unemployed ruffians cause trouble for the locals in "The Last of the Buffalo Hunters". The visual appeal in both tales is evident, especially in key scenes. The chasing down of a fugitive across an open field (2nd story, page 13) and Wyatt's stealthy approach from inside a cavern (1st story, page 14) are but two examples. Manning also tries his best to retain the likeness of Hugh O' Brien, actor of the tv show of the same name. This is number 2 of 13 Wyatt Earp issues with Manning art and/or covers.
