Star Hunters #1 - Don Newton art

Star Hunters v1 #1, 1977 - This science fiction series continues from the Star Hunters' first appearance in DC Super Stars #16. Don Newton illustrates this premiere issue before relinquishing it to other artists. Like the aforementioned issue, Newton's layouts are solidly designed and his pencils add an instant credibility. A few pages are dampened by Bob Layton's passive inking, but not to the detriment of the entire story. Other artists in this issue include Rich Buckler and Bob Layton (cover credits). This is number 1 of 1 Star Hunters issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Star Hunters issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
