House of Mystery #259 - Don Newton art


House of Mystery v1 #259, 1978 - This issue marks the last dollar comic of the series, boasting eighty pages of all new material. Among these is a sci-fi tale of space police arriving on a remote planet. Their memories of a peaceful community are shattered by the devastated& remnants. Don Newton's layouts appear crowded at times, but does a passable job with the artwork. Bob Layton's inking brings cohesion to the pencils overall. Perhaps more noteworthy is an early work by Michael Golden. Other artists in this issue include , Noly Panaligan, Ric Estrada, Romeo Tanghal, John Fuller, George Ruppert, Frank Chiaramonte, VInce Colletta, Juan Oritz, Ruben Yandoc, Dick Giordano and Joe Orlando (cover). This is number 1 of 2 House of Mystery issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or House of Mystery issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
