5.0 out of 5 stars Everything that's Great about the Eighties July 6 2012
By S. H. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Collecting: Marvel Graphic Novel #12 (Dazzler The Movie)

Beauty and the Beast #1-4 (miniseries)

Marvel Heartbreakers #1

Bonus: Art Gallery

The issues collected here were originally published in the mid1980s. The Beauty and the Beast graphic novel contains everything great about the 80's in a beautiful Premiere Edition format. Glam rock, Hollywood parties, overly sweet romantic plots, and a few jokes about the Gipper round out nearly 180 pages of classic Marvel fun.

This collection opens with the Dazzler the Movie graphic novel. Dazzler is a struggling singer/actress in Los Angeles. Her mutant power augments her stage presence, but in an atmosphere of rising anti-mutant hysteria Dazzler's powers are also a liability. Writer Jim Shooter's story is beautiful. Readers are treated to a classic story of the corrupting influence of power, smarmy Hollywood types, true love, and the difficulties a young mutant woman faces in the city of angels. Shooter develops and explores some aspects of Dazzler's power. This novel is critical reading for Dazzler fans.

Ann Nocenti's miniseries picks up right after Dazzler The Movie. Maybe mainstream Hollywood isn't ready for a mutant actress, but Hollywood has lots of underground opportunities for young starlets who will perform for a paycheck. The Beast sees the underground theater for the sham it is, but can he convince Dazzler to give up her dream?

The Heartbreakers one-shot is an epilogue. It is a sweet little piece that ties this collection into a successful conclusion.

If you like Dazzler, if you fondly remember classic comic book story telling, if you loved the eighties (or have a vague concept of who Ronald Reagan was), you will like this collection. I loved it, and it makes me want to see Dazzler featured more prominently in the current X-series.

great little book by Ann Nocenti, awesome cover art by Bill Sienkiewicz, but the story Dazzler The Movie, was very degrading towards women.
