Batman #337 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #337, 1981 - Responding to his friend's letter, Dick Grayson checks out the circus where Boston Brand, (a.k.a. Deadman) used to perform. The story is drawn and laid out by Don Newton, with only adequate results. Where the artist outperforms is the opening page, where a shadowy Robin watches from above. His figure is commanding, accented by the dramatic lighting from the big top below. Other artists in this issue include Jose Garcia Lopez, Steve Mitchell and Jim Aparo. This is number 6 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.
