Splash Page Saturday: Adventure Comics #461

sg
So I can give myself the occasional Saturday "off", I'm moving the occasional Splash Pages segment to Saturdays, so welcome to the inaugural installment of Splash Page Saturdays!

This nifty opening shot is from Adventure Comics #461, drawn and conceived by the late, great Don Newton and inked by Frank Chiaramonte. I love how Netwon had Aquaman and Mera entering the frame, crisscrossing each other but both headed towards the same spot on the page--it leads the eye to the center bottom, where we pick up the captions and then the title of the story and credits. A really wonderfully composed image!
