Blackhawk #266 - Don Newton art

Blackhawk v1 #266, 1983 - A back-up tale sheds some light on Olaf, the Blackhawks' Swedish member. He visits old friends from his circus performing days, only to evade Nazi soldiers attending their performance. Don Newton takes a little too much liberty on page two, distorting Olaf's face to the point of distraction. Otherwise his drawings are fine, particularly Olaf's transition into a disguise (page three). Inker Dennis Jensen is a less familiar name to me, but his finishes over Newton's pencils are more than adequate. Other artists in this issue include Dan Spiegle (art & cover). This is number 1 of 1 Blackhawk issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Blackhawk issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist.
