Aquaman #62 - Don Newton art

Aquaman v1 #62, 1978 - Aquaman deals with the tragedy and aftermath of his son's death, a rather grim theme for a superhero book. Don Newton handles the scenes with less nuance than I'd prefer, but as the plot moves into more familiar territory, his artwork meets expectations. His layouts are more varied than usual, experimenting with both pacing and sequencing. Aqualad also makes an appearance this issue. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo (cover). This is number 3 of 4 Aquaman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Aquaman issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist or an original page from this issue.
