Batman #360 - Don Newton art

Batman v1 #360, 1983 - With a cop-killer on the loose, the Batman catch the perpetrator before he reaches Commissioner Gordon. Sharply drawn and well-paced, the artwork by Don Newton retains the feel of detective film noir. Two different inkers contribute, but Pablo Marcos' efforts are darker and more dramatic (see interior page below) than Ron Randall's. Kudos also got to Newton for his varied and interesting layouts. Other artists include Ed Hannigan and Dick Giordano. This is number 16 of 34 Batman issues with Newton art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Newton or Batman issues.
