One of the all-time great Batman artists was born 86 years ago…
The late Don Newton — born Nov. 12, 1934 — was hands down one of the best Batman artists to ever put pencil to paper, even if I didn’t recognize that when I was a young teen. But age and maturity have a way of opening your eyes and that’s certainly the case with Newton.
Normally, we’d do a 13 COVERS birthday salute, but Newton was not really a Batman cover artist. So instead, we bring you 13 SPLASH PAGES — all from Detective Comics.
