Midnight Tales #14 - Don Newton art

Midnight Tales v1 #14, 1975 - In this prototypical science fiction tale, a rich young couple hires a rugged hunter to protect them on a time travel excursion. While the scenes of their prehistoric destination has its merits, it is Don Newton's opening setting of a contemporary living room that has the most appeal. He successfully conveys both the comfort and tranquility of wealth and the tension between the characters. The hunter's aggressive stance and the wife's suggestive pose are evidence of Newton's superbly subtle storytelling. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton and Wayne Howard (art & cover). This is number 4 of 4 Midnight Tales issues with Newton art and/or covers.

  1. It looks like Newton is trying to emulate Wrightson to some extent. It's not quite like his later, distinct style. Also, the husband resembles Roy Thomas in that era: thin, blond, nerdy. I wonder if this is by design.

  2. I agree there are similarities between the two artists' styles. Also you bring up a good point on the "Roy Thomas" character. I'd bet it's him.
