Batman #361 - Don Newton art


Batman v1 #361, 1983 - In an act of revenge, Man-Bat kidnaps the Batman's partner Jason Todd. Don Newton's opening splash is deceptively quiet but sets an ominous tone for the rest of the book. Layouts are varied, although some are more effective than others. Pablo Marcos' inks lack definition in a handful of panels, but for most scenes maintain a good balance of lights and darks (see interior page below). Other artists in this issue include Ed Hannigan and Dick Giordano. This is number 18 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
