Batman #305 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #305, 1978 - A murdered woman's ring bears an odd inscription, leading the Caped Crusader to go undercover in rural Maine. Part one of "Unsolved Cases of the Batman", this featurette is ably drawn by Don Newton, his first effort of many on this series. The artist does a particularly good job on his depictions of ordinary people. The story's highlight, however, is the opening splash of contemplative Batman at a local cemetery. Other artists in this issue include John Calnan, Dave Hunt and Jim Aparo. This is number 1 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
