New Gods #16 - Don Newton art

New Gods v1 #16, 1978 - Well into his run on this former Jack Kirby title, Don Newton begins to make the characters his own. Several pages are a tad too crowded, but are offset by the roominess of others. The two-page spread on pages 2 and 3 has many beautifully clothed characters in monochromatic colors. Joe Rubinstein provides the inks for the first time, using zipatone patterns and delicate brushwork. Like much of Newton's work, the characters' faces and expressions take center stage. Other artists in this issue include Al Milgrom (cover). This is number 4 of 7 New Gods issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or New Gods issues.
