Detective Comics #499 - Don Newton art


Detective Comics v1 #499, 1981 - Trapped deep in a mine in West Virginia, Batman and the Blockbuster put aside their conflict to save a crew of locals. Don Newton's work is terrific throughout, enhanced by Dan Adkins' inks. Added details and textures are used in the underground scenes, made more prominent by the limited color palette. Newton delivers one of his more memorable efforts on the series. Other artists in this issue include Joe Giella and Jose Delbo. Cover by Jim Aparo. This is number 19 of 39 Detective Comics issues with Newton art and/or covers.
