Entertainment by Russ Manning about a future that has robots that can go astray by their mad human creators. Very much fun to read when you realize the patriarchal limitations of the 1960's mindset.

Reads like one of those great old Hanna-barbara super cartoons from the 60's.

While the plots have grown a bit stale, the art and basic concepts remain solid. Some disillusioned scientist is trying to destroy the world and he makes one big mistake. He attempts right in front of where Magnus happens to be standing. Magnus wins the day with his ideals, strong arms, and intelligence. No one is as incredible as Magnus. He can punch through steel with his bare hands. The end.

Der Zauber von früher stellt sich nicht mehr so recht ein, nur Nostalgie. Die Storys schwächeln und sind stereotyp wie leider auch Russ Mannings Artwork, derentwegen ich den Band gekauft habe.
Kaum ist der Quantensprung zu glauben, den Manning wenig später mit den Tarzan-Zeitungsstrips vollziehen wird und wo er uns als großartiger Erzähler und Zeichner begegnen wird.
Die Dark Horse Archives-Ausgabe verdient allerdings jedes Lob hinsichtlich Einband, Papier, Druck und Verarbeitung.

Terrific art, clunky pulp sci-fi scripts.

Very nostalgic 50's feel. When I was a kid reading these comics I thought the robots were the most awesome art around. Still alot of fun to read.
