Infinity Inc. #13 - Don Newton art

Infinity Inc. v1 #13, 1985 – The superhero team finds some rest and relaxation on a remote tropical island. There they encounter the Rose and the Thorn, a mysterious pair of sisters rarely seen since the bronze age. Don Newton’s art is terrific throughout, including the cheesecake pose of Lyta Hall on page four and the evening campfire scene on age nine. His pencils are augmented by Joe Rubenstein, one of this era's finest inkers and a frequent partner. This issue would be Newton’s last published work before his death, and a perfect example of his considerable talent. This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #69. A fairly mediocre Todd McFarlane pin-up page appears toward the end. This is number 3 of 3 Infinity Inc. issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Infinity Inc. issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
