Russ Manning's Magnus Robot Fighter
I've been really enjoying Dark Horse's Magnus Robot Fighter archives. The art by Silver Age great Russ Manning is amazing and the stories hold up pretty good. I love the painted covers a lot of the Gold Key comics had back in those days. I'm not positive these are by Manning but they're beautiful nonetheless.
The pin-ups by Manning are also fantastic. I really like the simple style he used. It was very effective for the subject matter.
If you enjoy Silver Age science fiction comics and haven't read these books, I highly recommend them. It's great stuff.
