Charlton Bullseye #5 - Alex Toth art & cover, John Byrne, Neal Adams, Don Newton art

Alex Toth
Charlton Bullseye v1 #5, 1976 - Upon the return of the Banshee, the Question smokes him out of hiding for a final confrontation. Alex Toth showcases the hero in a shattering cover design. His story art is black and white, but only slightly less impactful. Toth's mastery of light and shadow is evident, as well as his sharp sense of design. A Doomsday +1 story continues from the previous issue, with John Byrne drawing all but the first three pages. His artwork is comparable to the regular Doomsday series published around the same time, but could have certainly benefited from color. Don Newton provides two text illustrations for his own interview about his work on The Phantom. Lastly, Neal Adams confidently renders his own version of the Doomsday characters on the back cover. This is number 4 of 4 Charlton Bullseye issues with Byrne art and/or covers, number 2 of 2 Charlton Bullseye issues with Newton art and/or covers, number 1 of 1 Charlton Bullseye issues with Adams art and/or covers and number 1 of 1 Charlton Bullseye issues with Toth art and/or covers.
