The Phantom v2 #71, 1976 - The Phantom confronts a giant arachnid, hidden within the caves of a remote mountaintop. Don Newton delivers his best work yet, starting with a magnificent splash of the hero standing watchful over his African domain. Rich and textural, his drawing captures the lush foliage of the jungle. The remaining pages are nicely laid out, but the artwork excels due to Newton's incomparable draftsmanship throughout. Rounding out the issue is "Witchman's Revenge", a two-page text story that reuses and alters Newton panels from previous issues. This is number 5 of 7 Phantom issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Phantom issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
