Weird War Tales #122 - Don Newton art


Weird War Tales v1 #122, 1982 - An old sailor recounts his days as a midshipman aboard a British destroyer. His tale turns fantastical as a futuristic ship engages them. Don Newton's artwork is largely adequate, with much of his effort put into the opening panel. Set in a peaceful bay in the South Pacific, the scene is more detailed than subsequent pages. Sal Trapani, whose style differs from Newton, nonetheless does an admirable job with the inks. Other artists in this issue include Ruben Yandoc, Romeo Tanghal and Howard Chaykin. This is number 2 of 2 Weird War Tales issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Weird War Tales issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
