Detective Comics #498 - Don Newton art


Detective Comics v1 #498, 1981 - Surviving a previous encounter with the Batman, the brutishly strong Blockbuster makes his way to a mining community. Don Newton's layouts are more conservative than usual, but his drawings seem more purposeful. A few panels stand out on their own due to careful design and execution. The final scene, of a defeated Batman and victorious Blockbuster, is Newton at his best. Other artists in this issue include Joe Giella and Jose Delbo. Cover by Jim Aparo. This is number 18 of 39 Detective Comics issues with Newton art and/or covers.
