Roy Rogers and Trigger #144 - Russ Manning art

Roy Rogers and Trigger v1 #144, 1958 - A woman suspects a former hired hand is her father’s killer, but the judge sets him free due to lack of evidence. Dale Evans steps in to try to find out the truth. Russ Manning’s last story on the series, his artwork is dependable in it secularity. HIs layouts are on the tamer side than usual. The story’s climax on page 4 could have also benefitted from using a larger panel. That aside, Manning’s style and approach are distinctive and recognizable. Other artists in this issue include Nat Edson. This is number 15 of 15 Roy Rogers and Trigger issues with Manning art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Manning or Roy Rogers issues. See also this blog's Russ Manning checklist.
