“In 1985, with the publication
of Beauty and the Beast,
history officially died. ”
Today on the program we wade into the infamous end of the pool. Beauty and the Beast by Ann Nocenti and “art” by Don Perlin. It tells the story of the love affair between Hank Mccoy’s Beast and – the disco-inspired mutant Dazzler. Is it good? Well, no. But does it have redeeming qualities? Maybe. It does have excellent covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, so that’s something.
Also, we briefly discuss the failed 70s/80s disco extravaganza Dazzler the Movie that would have been – if it had been actually made – simultaneously the worst and greatest movie in history.
Thanks again for listening.
