Old-school Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe

Greetings True Believers!

I love old-school OHMUs. I picked up a handful at Wizard-Con. I really like the art and the way they really went all-out with the bios and power descriptions.

I picked out few examples of my favorite art from the stack I bought. WARNING! 80s fashion and hair-cuts ahoy!




Wave back at Devil Dinosaur!



Pre-movie Blade.



Boom-Boom's Madonna phase.



Bullseye with great crazy-eyes.



Contessa Valentina Allegra de la Fontaine (Fury's main-squeeze) look was later stolen by Rogue.



Meggan is just too adorable.



Moon Boy! Devil Dinosaur's BFF.



Persuasion, the Purple Man's daughter.



Look at Jubilee's scary Joker-grin.



Killraven's Playgirl pose.



Madame Hydra, Dr. Freud on line one for you.



I loved Psylocke's old-school look.



Razorback! A mutant trucker from Arkansas.



I almost forgot! Apparently Whoopi Goldberg was in Power Pack as Numinus.


Love these books.

Looking at the relation of her body proportions to her boots and hardware, and the facial structure, I'm betting that's Simonson. It's too bold to be Art Adams, the only other one I can recall at the time who favored that structure.
