Almost Famous... (People February 1980)

The February 11, 1980 issue of People featured Hollywood power couple Bo and John Derek along with a stack of Marvel comics. She-Hulk #1 (February 1980) is clearly visible on the top of the stack and it looks as if there's a copy of the Fireside collection The Superhero Women (1977) on the bottom. According to Marvel Editor-in-Chief Jim Shooter, Bo Derek was being courted to star in a Dazzler feature film around this time, so it would make sense that the Dereks would have a stack of Marvel books as reference material. In retrospect, Bo Derek would definitely have been a gorgeous Dazzler, but I can't help but cringe in thinking just how bad a 1980 disco superhero film could have been if not executed perfectly.
