Batman #346 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #346, 1982 - For his first full Batman feature, Don Newton does a superlative job. Two-Face suddenly escapes prison and takes over a local halfway house. The artist employs plenty of dark, brooding shadows to create a film noir atmosphere. His layouts are varied just enough to maintain interest. Most significant is Newton's twisted portrait of Two-Face on the opening splash. Other artists in this issue include, Jim Aparo, Trevor Von Eeden and Pablo Marcos. This is number 8 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
