Dazzler Vs. Galactus!
I've always got a kick of of Marvel's late 70's disco heroine Dazzler. She was definitely of her time but her book actually had a lot of pretty good stories and art. This particular issue, from December, 1981, is a good example of that. It has good cover and interior art by Frank Springer and Vince Colletta and the sheer notion of the Dazzler taking on the mighty Galactus makes me smile. This issue also has cool ads promoting the new Saturday morning lineups for NBC and CBS. There were a lot of cool cartoons coming out at the time. What choices for an eleven year old to make!
And who could resist ol' Greenskin's request to subscribe to your favorite Marvel mags for only $5 a year?
It was a great time to be a Marvel Maniac and this issue brings back a lot of good memories of that era.
