Midnight Tales #11 - Don Newton art

Midnight Tales v1 #11, 1975 - The lead story opens with a scene on Mount Olympus, where a youth pleads for his life before Zeus and the other gods of Greek mythology. The surroundings are resplendent in their ornate patterns and decorations. All the stories within this issue follow an ancient mythological theme, but Don Newton's illustrations are the most skillfully drawn. His fine brushwork enhances the classical costumes and settings, making this tale one of his best works for Charlton. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton and Wayne Howard (art & cover). This is number 1 of 4 Midnight Tales issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Midnight Tales issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
