Vigilante #4 - Don Newton art


Vigilante v1 #4, 1984 - DC introduced this new version of the Vigilante during the 1980s, starting as a supporting character in the New Teen Titans. Four issues into the character's own solo series, Don Newton completes one of the stories of his career. His layouts and pacing are adequate, but could have been helped by more aggressive inking by Pablo Marcos. The issue's highlight is the opening splash, showing a romantic scene from a classic Hollywood film. Although the well-dressed couple are the intended focal point, the elaborately drawn interiors hold their own weight visually. As a nice touch, Newton places a cherub statue in the foreground as a romantic symbol. Keith Pollard is the cover artist. This is number 1 of 1 Vigilante issues with Newton art and/or covers.
