Giant-Size Defenders #3 - Jim Starlin / Don Newton art


Giant-Size Defenders v1 #3, 1974 - Daredevil guest stars in this annual, supporting Doctor Strange, the Hulk and Sub-mariner against the all-seeing Grandmaster. Jim Starlin is credited with the layouts, but his contribution seems more prominent. Along with Al Milgrom and Jim Mooney, Don Newton shares the pencilling and inking chores. His distinctive style, which appears on pages 14-19, 31-36, 38 and 39, adds a nice fluidity to the story (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Ron Wilson (cover). This is number 1 of 1 Giant-Size Defenders issues with Newton art and/or covers and number 2 of 2 Giant-Size Defenders issues with Starlin art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, Starlin or Defenders issues. See also this blog's Starlin checklist, Newton checklist or Top 10 Starlin comics.
