Batman #366 - Don Newton art, Walt Simonson cover

Walt Simonson
Batman v1 #366, 1983 - Following the Joker to Guatemala, the Caped Crusader must stop his foe's attempt to ignite a revolution. Don Newton's pencils are dependably recognizable, despite the heavy inks of Alfredo Alcala. Two splendid splash pages occur during the story, both expertly composed by Newton. The high point of the issue is Walt Simonson's exceptional cover design. Unusually, the series masthead is re-positioned and blended into the scene. While unorthodox, the artist's design is used to full effect. Simonson further enhances his artwork through sublime texture and detailing. The result is one of the finest Joker covers of the entire series. See today's posts or more Newton, Simonson or Batman issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist or Simonson checklist.
