House of Mystery #272 - Don Newton art


House of Mystery v1 #272, 1979 - Vikings proceeds to storm an ancient castle rumored to contain a vast treasure. Short in length, Don Newton's handful of pages is merely adequate. Many panels are small and appear simplistic. One saving grace is the opening panel, providing an overlook of the ominous castle and its determined marauders. Dan Adkins adds his usually dependable flair to Newton's pencils. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc and Jack Abel. This is number 2 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 Don Newton checklist.
