Batman #328 - Don Newton art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
Batman v1 #328, 1980 - Commissioner Gordon gets help from the Batman to solve one of his first cases as a police officer. A murdered man, missing jewels and a thief gone insane bring them to a long abandoned subway line. Don Newton's artwork shines on this shorter back-up story. Gordon's final confrontation with his past is deftly handled on page 7. Joe Kubert's cover, with its colorful quadrants, is much too convoluted. Other artists in this issue include Irv Novick and Bob Smith. This is number 3 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, Kubert or Batman issues.
