Epic Beards of Review: The Uncanny X-Men #214 (Comic-a-Day #30)
The Uncanny X-Men #214, FEB 87 (w) Chris Claremont (a) Barry Windsor-Smith
Dazzler is tired of hiding, and she's going to cut loose, even if that means letting others onto her status as a mutant. It's a neat feeling seeing Windsor-Smith's depiction of Dazzler's light shows with Claremont's description of being a musician. I've been on both sides of the stage, and it's magic every time. Much like Claremont telling it like it is.
The issue basically revolves around the entity of Malice who has hijacked Dazzler and then runs through the rest of the X-Men before she takes off to some other hapless soul.
Not a bad offering, but not great. Art really moved this one along.
