Adventure Comics #465 - Don Newton art

Adventure Comics v1 #465, 1979 - Exploring the Antarctic coast, Aquaman discovers an advanced Nazi civilization living just below the surface. Some page layouts are better than others, but Don Newton's pencils appear a tad watered down by Dan Adkins' inks. Depth and modeling are less evident on pages 1-4 (specifically Aquaman's battle with an unknown sea creature). Overall though, the collaboration between these two artists generally meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo, Joe Staton, Jack Abel and others. This is number 5 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.
