Adventure Comics #459 - Don Newton art

Adventure Comics v1 #459, 1979 - With the cancellation of their own series, the New Gods continue their war against Darkseid in this long running series. Don Newton continues as artist, portraying Jack Kirby's characters in a softer light. Despite two splashes and two full page spreads, the drawings lack polish and clarity. Augie Scotto further hampers the pencils with uninspired inking. Page 13's dramatic scene especially falls short, mostly due to poor execution. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo, Irv Novick, Jim Staton, Jack Abel, Bruce Patterson and others. This is number 1 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.
