The Unexpected #204 - Don Newton art, Joe Kubert cover

Joe Kubert
The Unexpected v1 #204, 1980 - A young couple runs afoul of a jealous female conjurer and her flirtatious magician lover. Don Newton's opening page is innocuous, but quickly transitions into a sequence of brilliantly fluid layouts. The story's mystical themes allow for scenes that are almost dream-like and fantastical. Although Newton's first and last pages are merely adequate, the rest is exceptionally and appropriately rendered. Joe Kubert's cover just meets expectations. Other artists in this issue include John Calnan, Bo Hampton and C.F. Payne. This is number 1 of 1 Unexpected issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton, Kubert or Unexpected issues. See also this blog's Newton checklist or Kubert checklist.
