Haunted #21 - Don Newton art, cover & reprint


(Baron Weirwulf's) Haunted (Library) v1 #21, 1975 - Baron Weirwulf formally takes over as series host with a modified cover title. Don Newton heralds this change with an exceptionally painted cover. Rich greens, blues and reds contribute to the dead serious, iconic portrait. The artist also contributes two new separate pages inside: a brief introduction and a biography of Harry Houdini. Also included is a promo ad for this series, reprinted from Haunted Love #8. Other artists in this issue include Joe Staton, Pat Boyette and Tom Sutton. This is number 2 of 3 Haunted issues with Newton art and/or covers (not including reprints). See today's posts or more Newton or Haunted issues. See also this blog's Don Newton checklist.

The Hawk 3-D #1 - Matt Baker cover

The Hawk v1 3D #1, 1953 - One of several special issues, St. John published the interior stories in the popular 3-D method. Unfortunately, the cover leaves little room for Matt Baker's artwork. The scene is squeezed into too small a space and the details are few. Baker's other contributions to The Hawk would thankfully be more substantial. This is number 1 of 1 Hawk 3-D issues with Baker art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Baker or The Hawk issues. See also this blog's Matt Baker checklist.
