The Phantom v2 #69 - Don Newton cover, mis-attributed Newton art

The Phantom v2 #69 charlton comic book cover art by Don Newton
Don Newton
The Phantom v2 #69, 1976 - Don Newton relinquishes the interior art in this issue, but continues with this fine painted cover. The work is muddy and overdone at times, but is distinctive as well. His colors here are more muted than the standard comics of the era, but no less effective. He would eventually do seven covers in all for this flagship adventure title. Newton's artwork does appears in 6 other issues of Phantom. This is number 3 of 7 Phantom issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Phantom issues.

  1. I own this painting; the comic does it no justice at all.
