Manning Mondays

Russ Manning had a mastery of the simple line that was, like Toth, more about what he DIDN'T draw as what he did...

Leaves, foliage - defined by outline and silhouette. The ground by shadows. He also understood the power of spotting powerful blacks, using shadow to define shapes and dynamics, rather than hide a lack of knowledge of form.

From Korak, to Tarzan, to his own Magnus Robot Fighter, Manning penned wild adventures in exotic, far away places, those lost in time and those years in the future... or a long time ago.
