Adventure Comics #461 - Don Newton art


Adventure Comics v1 #461, 1979 - Atlantis' new king partners with a US food conglomerate, leading Aquaman to further investigate. Don Newton delivers another terrific effort, experimenting with both layouts and panel transitions. The most memorable scenes depict Aquaman's clandestine entry into corporate headquarters (see interior page below). The use of darks and lights result in greater visual impact. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo, Joe Staton, Jack Abel and others. This is number 3 of 8 Adventure Comics issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Adventure Comics issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
