Thanksgiving Turkey NIGHTCAT Conclusion

Art by Joe Jusko
...NightCat was about to perform, but with real ninjas (working for evil record producer/drug lord Amanda Gideon) in place of her backup dancers!
Only in comics would the previous sentence make sense...
Sadly, 'twas not to be.
She didn't prowl after this one-shot since both the comic and her album tanked.
But, perhaps you were one of the lucky few who ordered the limited-edition t-shirt...
Plotted by Barry Dutter & Jim Salicrup
Scripted by Stan Lee
(yes, that Stan Lee, who also appears in the story!)
Penciled by Denys Cowan
Inked by Jimmy Palmiotti
With Dazzler achiving some sales success, Marvel decided in 1991 to try again, this time following-through with the idea of using a real songstress performing in costume that they wanted to do with Dazzler.
In partnership with MCA Records, Marvel hired model/singer Jaqueline Tavarez to embody the character.
An album was released and Stan Lee appeared with her on several music-themed tv shows including Into the Night with Rick Dees and Party Machine with Nia Peeples.
Oddly, despite this being the Golden Age of MTV, no music video of NightCat was ever released!
But, thanks to YouTube, you can listen to her only single...
Hope you enjoyed our Thanksgiving Turkey!
Next Week
the never-reprinted origin of
Mighty ISIS!
(no, not the idiot terrorists, but the kool Saturday morning tv character)


  1. That's a whole lot of gratuitous crotch and butt shots.

    1. Artist Denys Cowan is noted for that sort of stuff.
