DC Special #28 - Don Newton art

DC Special v1 #28 presents Earth-Shattering Disasters, 1977 - Featuring all new material, three disaster-themed tales feature Aquaman, Batman and the Legion of Super-heroes, respectively. Don Newton's art on Aquaman is not dissimilar to his work on the hero's own title. His full page splash at the beginning is oddly composed yet nicely rendered. Overall he does a terrific job, especially with his well-defined, dramatically lit faces (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Arvell Jones, Bob Layton, John Calnan, Tex Blaisdell and Jim Aparo (cover). This is number 1 of 1 DC Special issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or DC Special issues.
