Batman #352 - Don Newton art


Batman v1 #352, 1982 - With Commissioner Gordon hospitalized, the Batman pursues the mystery of a giant zeppelin and a missing battleship. Don Newton's normally textural work is significantly watered down by inker John Calnan. Some pages and panels are unrecognizable in style. The artist's hand is most recognizable on the darkened opening splash and the dirigible's moody entrance on page 6 (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo (cover). This is number 9 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
