   DC Comics

Title Issue Date Contribution
DC Special 28   07/77   A 12-page Aquaman story, "A Creature of Death and Darkness!" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This is Don's first work at DC.  
New Gods 12   07/77   A 17-page story titled either "The Return of the New Gods" or "Prelude to a Holocaust" (take your pick!) written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins  
Amazing World of DC Comics 15   08/77   Don provided an unknown illustration for "The Fabulous Females" article written by Mike Gold.  
New Gods 13   08/77   A 17-page story titled "Let Loose the Hounds of War...!" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins  
Batman Family 13   09/77   Robin, Batgirl and Man-Bat together for the first time in a story, "The Man Who Melted Manhattan!" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and Marshall Rogers, and inked by Bob Wiacek. This is a 30-page story, broken up into four chapters. Except for the eight pages of chapter 2, Don pencils the entire thing. There is some great early Newton art here, including a very sexy rendition of Batgirl, but it sometimes gets lost in the Wiacek inks.  
DC Super-Stars 16   10/77   A cover penciled by Don and inked by Bob Layton and a 34-page story featuring the origin of the Star Hunters called, "The Star Hunters!" written by Dave Michelinie, penciled by Don, and inked by Bob Layton.  
New Gods 14   10/77   A 17-page story titled "A Child Shall Leave You" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins  
Star Hunters 1   11/77   A 17-page story called, "Junkworld!" written by Dave Michelinie, penciled by Don, and inked by Bob Layton. Don left the strip at this time to concentrate on the New Gods.  
New Gods 15   12/77   Don is not in this issue, but editor Paul Levitz mentions in the letter page that Don is missing because he is giving final exams.  
  16   02/78   Don is back with another 17-page story, his first as a full-time comic artist, having quit his job as a teacher. "The Titan and the Hunter" is written by Gerry Conway and is, I believe, the first time Joe Rubinstein inks Don's pencils. Joe was Don's favorite inker and inked Don's last artwork on Infinity Inc. #13.  
Aquaman 60   03/78   An 11-page Aquaman story "Scavenger, Ravenger, Plunderer, Thief!" written by David Michelinie, penciled by Don and inked by John Celardo. Features Kobra. Don returned to Aquaman after his first art on the character appeared in DC Special #23 eight months earlier

Aquaman 61   05/78   A 17-page Aquaman story "The Armageddon Conspiracy" written by David Michelinie, penciled by Don and inked by Bob McLeod. Features Kobra, Batman, and Green lantern. Don's first Batman and Green Lantern work!  
New Gods 18   06/78   Another 17-page story titled "The Song of the Source" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
SHAZAM! 35   06/78   A 17-page Captain Marvel story called, "Backward, Turn Backward, O Time in Your Flight!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don, and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger. Last issue of book; series continued in World's Finest.l  
Aquaman 62   07/78   A 17-page Aquaman story "And the Walls Came Tumblin' Down" written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by Bob McLeod.  
House of Mystery 259   08/78   Something by Don according to the Overstreet guide.  
New Gods 19   08/78   A final 17-page story titled "The Secret Within Us..." written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. The New Gods book was canceled with this issue but the strip continued in the pages of Adventure Comics.  
Aquaman 63   09/78   A 17-page Aquaman story "My Brother's Keeper" written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt. Last issue of the book. The series moved over to Adventure Comics the next month with issue #459.  
Adventure Comics 459   10/78   A 15-page New Gods story, "Climax to Chaos" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Augie Scotto. This is the continuation of the New Gods story from New Gods #19.  
DC Special Series 10   10/78   Secret Origins of Super-Heroes featuring the origin of Lightray of the New Gods. "A Light A-Borning," a 14-page story written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte.  
World's Finest 253   10/78   A 17-page Marvel Family story, "The Captain and the King!", written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger. There's a Newton/Schaffenberger frontispiece (partly made up of illo on page 14 of Amazing World of DC Comics # 17.  
Batman 305   11/78   An 8-page Batman backup story "With This Ring -- Find Me Dead!" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.  
Detective Comics 480   11/78   A 17-page Batman story, "The Perfect Fighting Machine" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt. Don was credited as a "Guest Penciller" on this his first Batman story. Hunt was not the greatest of inkers for Don; he tended to smooth and simplify, losing too much of the Newton style in the process.  
Adventure Comics 460   12/78   A 10-page New Gods story, "Pursuit to Eternity" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Augie Scotto. This story wrapped up the loose-ends from the New Gods own book and presented the end to the war between the New Gods and Darkseid of Apokolips.  
        Also features a 13-page Aquaman story, "The Hunt" written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This story is really nicely drawn by Don and Dan.  
Batman 306   12/78   An 8-page Batman backup story "The Mystery Murderer of Mrs. Batman!" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.  
World's Finest 254   12/78   A 15-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Devil and Captain Marvel" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger.  
Detective Comics 481   01/79   An 11-page Robin story, ""Does the Costume Make the Hero?" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
        Also, an 11-page Man-Bat story, "The Whittles Snatch" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.  
Adventure Comics 461   02/79   A very nice 12-page Aquaman story, "The Hand That Feeds the Earth..." written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte.  
World's Finest 255   02/79   A 15-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "Dreamdancer" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger. This issue also contains a Newton/Schaffenberger frontispiece.  
  256   04/79   A 15-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Gamester's Death Wager!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger.  
Detective Comics 483   05/79   A 16-page Batman story, "The Curse of Crime Alley" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
World's Finest 257   06/79   A 15-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Invincible Man" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger.  
Detective Comics 484   07/79   A 16-page Batman story, "Assault on Olympus!" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.

Brave and the Bold 153   08/79   A 17-page Batman and Red Tornado story, "Menace of the Murder Machines" written by Cary Burkett, penciled by Don and inked by Bob Smith.  
World's Finest 258   08/79   A 15-page Shazam! strip, "The Courtship of Captain Nazi" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger. Although Shazam! is usually a Captain Marvel strip, this one is really a Captain Marvel Jr. strip. Both Don and Kurt seem to work hard on this one to get the feeling of Mac Raboy's stint of the CM Jr. strip.  
Detective Comics 485   09/79   A 20-page Batman story, "The Vengence Vow" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
        Also, an 11-page Man-Bat story, "SST -- The Super-Sonic Threat!" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Frank McLaughlin. I used to think that Frank was not a good inker for Don, but looking at an original from this book has changed my mind.  
House of Mystery 272   09/79   A 5-page story, "The Sorceror's Castle" writen by Michael Uslan, pencils by Don and inks by Dan Adkins (a nicely rendered little take on a well-known plot).  
Adventure Comics 465   10/79   A 12-page Aquaman story, "Ice Pact" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
World's Finest 259   10/79   A 19-page Green Arrow/Hawkman strip, "Stake Out Earth" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt and Vince Colletta. Colletta's inks on the second half of this book are as bad as anything I've ever seen done to Don's pencils.  
        A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Secret of Mr. Tawny" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Kurt Schaffenberger.  
Brave and the Bold 156   11/79   A 17-page Batman and Doctor Fate story, "Corruption!" written by Cary Burkett, penciled by Don and inked by Bob Smith.  
Detective Comics 486   11/79   A 17-page Batman story, "Murder by Thunderbolt" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Time Warp 1   11/79   A 6-page science-fiction strip, "Rescue" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Adventure Comics 466   12/79   A 10-page Aquaman story, "Death on Ice" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Weird War Tales 82   12/79   A 6-page story, "An Outbreak of Peace" written by George Kashdan, pencils by Don and inks by Dave Hunt.  
Detective Comics 487   01/80   A 17-page Batman story, "The Perils of Sergius" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Time Warp 2   01/80   A 6-page science-fiction strip, "Cultural Exchange" written by George Kashdan, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Simons.  
World's Finest 260   01/80   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "There Goes the Neighborhood" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt. Dave Hunt's inks are very nice this issue.  
Detective Comics 488   03/80   A 17-page Batman story, "The Spook's Death Sentence for Batman" written by Cary Burkettv, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Time Warp 3   03/80   An 8-page science-fiction strip, "Plague" written by George Kashdan, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell.  
World's Finest 261   03/80   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Case of the Runaway Sculpture" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt. Another nice inking job by Hunt.  
Best of DC 5   04/80   Batman story "Curse of Crime Alley" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don, and inked by Dan Adkins. First appeared in Detective #483.  
Detective Comics 489   04/80   A 10-page Batman story, "Where Strikes the Assassins", written by, Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
  490   05/80   A 22-page Batman story, "Requiem for a Martyr!" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Time Warp 4   05/80   A 7-page science-fiction strip, "The Hole in Reality's Heart" written by J. M. DeMatteis, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell.  
World's Finest 262   05/80   A 10-page Aquaman strip, "Siren of the Sargasso" written by Bob Rozakis, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. Beautiful inks by Adkins.  
        A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Captain Marvel of 7,000 B.C." written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.  
Detective Comics 491   06/80   A 17-page Batman story, "The Riddle of the Golden Fleece" written by Denny O'Neil, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
  492   07/80   A 15-page Batman story, "Vengence Trail" written by Cary Burkett, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This story features Batgirl.  
        A 10-page Batgirl story, "At War with General Scarr" written by Cary Burkett, penciled by Don and inked by Bob Smith is a continuation of the "Vengence Trail" story-line and also features Batman.  
Time Warp 5   07/80   A 7-page science-fiction strip, "Union In Steel", written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell (not so hot, either)  
World's Finest 263   07/80   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel Jr.), "The Greybeard Gang" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.

Detective Comics 493   08/80   A 17-page Batman story, "Riddles in the Dark" written by Cary Burkett, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This story introduced the Swashbuckler. Despite what the credits say, at the very least, the last page of this story is not inked by Dan Adkins. I would guerss this is the work of Continuity Studios as Neal Adams hand appears to be at work on some pages.  
  494   09/80   A 16-page Batman story, "The Crime Doctor Calls at Midnight!" written by Michael Fleisher, penciled by Don and inked by Bob Smith.  
World's Finest 264   09/80   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Monster Society Strikes Back!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dave Hunt.

Ghosts 94   11/80   A 6-page strip, "A Spirit Was Waiting" written by George Kashdan, penciled by Don and inked by John Celardo.  
Secrets of the Haunted Mansion 30   11/80   An excellent 9-page story, "For the Love of Arlo" written by Ms. Charlie Seeger, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
Unexpected 204   11/80   A 9-page House of Secrets story, "Demons are a Girl's Best Friend!" written by Ms. Charlie Seeger, penciled by Don and inked surprisingly well by Tex Blaisdell.  
World's Finest 265   11/80   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Plot Against the Human Race" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Beautiful job of inking by Chiaramonte.  
Detective Comics 497   12/80   A 15-page Batman story, "Bad Night in Baja" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This story is dedicated to Will Eisner and contains a number of homages to Eisner's Spirit.  
Weird War Tales 94   12/80   Don drew and John Celardo inked a really great splash page featuring Death playing chess. The chessmen are soldiers from different historical times. Very nice work on this one.  
Batman 331   01/81   An 8-page Batman and Commissioner Gordon backup story, "Wolf in the Fold" written by Mike W. Barr, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell.  
Detective Comics 498   01/81   A 17-page Batman story, "Night of the Savage" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This story features the Blockbuster and is really very nice Newton work.  
World's Finest 266   01/81   A 9-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "Sivana's Space Armada" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Joe Giella. Giella's inks were unspectacular.  
Batman 332   02/81   An 8-page Catwoman backup story, "Cat's Paw" written by Marv Wolfman, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell.  
Detective Comics 499   02/81   A 17-page Batman story, "Allies in the Shadows" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
  500   03/81   Don was treated pretty shabby by DC right here. He just completed 15 of the last 16 issues, but for issue 500, they snub him completely. Not right at all.  
Mystery In Space 117   03/81   A 3-page story, "The Following Program Is Pre-Recorded", written by B.S. Watson, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell (blah)  
World's Finest 267   03/81   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "Assault on the Rock of Eternity!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Bob Smith.  
Detective Comics 501   04/81   Now that the celebration is over, Don is allowed back on the book! A beautiful 17-page Batman story, "The Man Who Killed Mlle. Marie!" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins.  
House of Mystery 291   04/81   Splash page by Newton and Orlando.  
Detective Comics 502   05/81   A beautiful 17-page Batman story, "Who Shot Mlle. Marie?" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. This two parter ending here was some of Don's best Batman work ever.  
World's Finest 268   05/81   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "A Sleep and the Deep" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell.  
Detective Comics 503   06/81   A beautiful 25-page Batman story, "The 6 Days of the Scarecrow" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. Another wonderful piece of work by Don in a story featuring Robin and Batgirl.  
Batman 337   07/81   An 8-page Robin backup story, "Murder on the Midway," written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Larry Mahlstedt. This story features the "Hills Bros. Circus" from the Deadman strip with Tiny, Lorna Hill, Vishnu, and Cleveland Brand as Deadman.

World's Finest 269   07/81   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel Jr.), "Sabbac Strikes Back!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Dan Adkins. Adkin's inks are inconsistant this issue.

World's Finest 272   10/81   A 10-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "Chained Lightning!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Steve Mitchell. Also, a small self portrait next to the profile for Don at the end of the book.

Detective Comics 511   02/82   A 27-page Batman story, "The 'I' of the Beholder" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Features Robin. This is one of the best inking jobs Chiaramonte ever did on Don's pencils. Just superb!  
Green Lantern 149   02/82   An 8-page Tales of the Green Lantern Corps story, "Earth's First Green Lantern" written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don, and inked by Dan Adkins. A really nice western by Don.

World's Finest 278   04/82   A 9-page Shazam! strip (Mary Marvel), "The Power of Darkness!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte.  
Detective Comics 514   05/82   A 17-page Batman story, "Haven!" written by Len Wein, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Cover by Don Newton and Dick Giordano (this is Don's first Detective cover!)..  
World's Finest 279   05/82   A 9-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "When Bancroft Fisher Dies, Everybody Dies!" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte.  
Detective Comics 515   06/82   An 18-page Batman story, "College for Killers" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Features Robin.  
World's Finest 280   06/82   A 9-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The Secret of the Freeman Brothers" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte.  
Detective Comics 516   07/82   An 18-page Batman story, "Final Exams!" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Features Robin.  
World's Finest 281   07/82   A 9-page Shazam! strip (Captain Marvel), "The One-Woman Monster Society" written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by John Calnan.  
Adventure Comics 491   09/82   A 9-page Shazam! story, "The Confederation of Hell," written by E. Nelson Bridwell, Penciled by Don, inked by Frank Chiaramonte. Adventure went to digest-size with this issue, so it's 5" x 7" and looks pretty poor,  
Detective Comics 518   09/82   An 18-page Batman story, "The Millionaire Contract" written by Gerry Conway and Paul Levitz, penciled by Don and inked by Bruce Patterson. Bruce is another bad inking match for Don.  
Adventure Comics 492   10/82   A 10-page Shazam! story, "... Battle With The Gods!", written by E. Nelson Bridwell, penciled by Don and inked by John Calnan. Again, digest-size, and I think Calnan's inks (even at this diminutive size) took away a lot of "Newtonian" quality.  
        I suspect this and the one in 491 were originally slated for World's Finest, before it went back to standard format from the Dollar Size.  
Batman 352   10/82   A 23-page story "The Killer Sky!" written by Gerry Conway and Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by John Calnan.  
Detective Comics 519   10/82   A 17-page Batman story, "...Like a Dreadnought in the Sky!" written by Gerry Conway and Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don and inked by John Calnan. Calnan is yet another bad inking match for Don.  
Batman 353   11/82   An 8-page Batman and Robin backup story "The Sting--Batman Style" written by Mike W. Barr, penciled by Don and inked by Dennis Jensen.  
Detective Comics 520   11/82   A 16-page Batman story, "The Haunting of "Boss" Thorne" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Alfredo Alcala.  
Batman 354   12/82   A 23-page story "Showdown" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Alfredo Alcala.  
  355   01/83   A 23-page story "Never Scratch a Cat" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Alfredo Alcala.  
  356   02/83   A 23-page story "The Double Life of Hugo Strange" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dick Giordano.  
DC Comics Presents 54   02/83   A 23-page Superman/Green Arrow team-up titled, "The Price of Progress" written by Paul Kupperberg, penciled by Don, and inked by Dan Adkins. I think this is Don's only professional work on Superman. This issue also features a wonderful cover penciled by Don and inked by Dick Giordano.  
Batman 357   03/83   A 23-page story "Squid" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Alfredo Alcala.  
Detective Comics 524   03/83   A 17-page Batman story, "Deathgrip" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Dick Giordano.  
Weird War Tales 122   04/83   There is something by Don in this issue.  
Detective Comics 526   05/83   The 500th appearance of Batman in Detective Comics and they finally let Don loose on the celebration! Cover by Don Newton and Dick Giordano A 56-page Batman story, "All My Enemies Against Me!" written by Gerry Conway, penciled by Don and inked by Alfredo Alcala pits Batman against everyone!
