New Gods #19 - Don Newton art


New Gods v1 #19, 1978 - Although the last issue of the series, the storyline continues in Adventure Comics #459. Don Newton's drawings use interesting variations in shape and placement of certain panels. The largest, showing a machine harnessing the pain of captured humans (pages 2-3) stands out aesthetically. The issue's high point is the opening splash, presenting a stony-faced Darkseid and his lackey. The dramatic lighting is one of Newton's trademarks and works effectively here. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton and Bob Layton (cover). This is number 7 of 7 New Gods issues with Newton art and/or covers.
