Iron Man annual #4 - Don Newton art


Iron Man v1 annual #4, 1977 - The Champions make a rare crossover appearance, joining Iron Man against the villain Modok. Don Newton inks an unrelated back-up tale, featuring the kung-fu fighter Midnight (who debuted in Special Marvel Editon #16). Like his first appearance, the character is mostly drawn in black silhouette without modeling or depth. Newton rarely inked others, but his mastery of light and shadow enhances the pencils without overpowering them. Other artists in this issue include George Tuska and Don Perlin. This is number 1 of 1 Iron Man annual issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Iron Man issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
