Batman #331 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #331, 1981 - One of Commissioner Gordon's men goes undercover and eventually winds up missing. The Batman promptly steps in, using his disguise talents to investigate. Don Newton's pencils are merely adequate, perhaps hampered by Steve Mitchell's inking. His best work appears in the opening scene (see interior page below), where the Batman's arrival is dramatized by high contrast lighting. Other artists in this issue include Irv Novick, Frank McLaughlin and Jim Aparo. This is number 4 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
