Chris and Chandler return to Ann Nocenti’s work, this time her miniseries Beauty and the Beast starring Dazzler and Beast. On the surface, the series looks to be a silly romp through Hollywood fluff, but peeling back the layers we discover all the sinister traps Hollywood has in store for stars like Dazzler. Oh, and apparently Doctor Doom has something going on in this story too.
Beauty and the Beast #1 was published in December 1984. That same month:
- Top film at the time: Beverly Hills Cop
- Top song at the time: Tie between “Out of Touch” by Hall & Oates and “Like a Virgin” by Madonna
- Andra Day, Theo James, and Jackson Rathbone are all born this month
