DC Super-Stars #16 / Star Hunters - Don Newton art & cover

DC Super-Stars v1 #16 presents Star Hunters, 1977 - The Star Hunters mark their first appearance, led by an Errol Flynn-like character named Donovan Flint. This giant issue boasts an impressive story length of over thirty pages. Don Newton's drawings are sound and his layouts paced accordingly. Bob Layton is usually a sympathetic inker to Newton's pencils, but here his inks vary widely in quality. Many pages are beautifully rendered, while others (like the opening splash) seem lacking. What could have been an great Newton piece becomes a merely good one. The adventures of these space heroes continue in Star Hunters #1. This is number 1 of 1 DC Super-Stars issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, DC Super-Stars or Star Hunters issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
