Batman #372 - Don Newton art


Batman v1 #372, 1984 - Taking the focus away from Batman, the story instead emphasizes an upcoming bout between two boxers and the role that race and greed play in the boxing industry. Don Newton's pencils are mostly overwhelmed by inker Alfredo Alcala. With the exception of pages 13-14 (see interior page below), Newton's hand is nearly unrecognizable. This story was later reprinted in Best of DC #62. Other artists in this issue include Ed Hannigan and Dick Giordano. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
