Avengers annual #9 - Don Newton art & cover

Avengers v1 annual #9, 1979 - One of Don Newton's lengthiest tales, the Avengers take on the power of the robotic Arsenal. The artist's drawings are more pliable than usual, making his work more approachable. Often using high contrast lighting, his pencils fare better under Joe Rubenstein's inks (pages 24-46) than Jack Abel's (pages 1-23). Surprisingly, in thirty-plus pages there are only three splashes. The most arresting of these is the display of Avengers demolishing their own mansion (page 24). Overall, Newton does a decent job comparable to his effort on Avengers #204. This is number 1 of 1 Avengers Annual issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Avengers issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
