World's Finest Comics #259 - Marshall Rogers, Don Newton art

World's Finest Comics v1 #259, 1979 - When an interstellar policeman pursues his fugitive to Earth, Green Arrow and Hawkman intervene to get the facts. Two different inkers assist penciller Don Newton, but with drastically different results. Don Hunt adds depth and drama, whereas Vince Colletta poorly defines the original drawings. Newton's second story features Captain Marvel and details the origin of Mr. Tawny. Like Hunt, Kurt Schaffenberger proves to be a capable inker. Marshall Rogers provides the layouts for a solo Black Lightning tale, but his efforts are dampened by his two collaborators. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Dick Giordano. This is number 1 of 1 World's Finest issues with Rogers art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, Rogers or World's Finest issues.
