Monster Hunters #1 - Don Newton cover

Don Newton
Monster Hunters v1 #1, 1975 - The Loch Ness monster is real enough on this brightly painted cover. Don Newton replicates a panel from an interior story but does a far better job. His layout is cleaner and more concise. The rich brushstrokes of the sky and waves increase the sense of movement. Most noticeably, Newton's vibrant color palette heightens the scene's danger and intensity. Other artists in this issue include Paul Kirchner, Joe Staton, Wayne Howard and Pete Morisi. This is number 1 of 1 Monster Hunters issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Monster Hunters issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
