Adventure Comics #492 - Don Newton art, Alex Toth, Jack Kirby reprints


Adventure Comics v1 #492, 1982 - Master Man conjures an army of ancient gods, intent on destroying Captain Marvel and company. Despite Don Newton's appealing pencils, inker John Calnan struggles to maintain clarity and definition. Several of the characters' faces and figures appear modified from the intent. On the positive side, the initial layouts are intact, including the splash on page 5. Reprints in this digest feature the Legion of Super-heroes (in their first encounter with Supergirl), Black Canary (Alex Toth tale from Adventure Comics #419) and the golden age Sandman (art by Jack Kirby). This is number 8 of 8 Adventure Comics issues with Newton art and/or covers.
