Many moons ago (Good Lord, has it really been over 3 years???), I posted some pages from "New Mutants Forever", which was Chris Claremont's return to the X-Men's original cadet team.

It was, as I said at the time, a very mixed bag, with too many of Claremont's tired plot tropes (mind control, body horror, enforced (but enjoyable) release from moral boundaries etc) and not enough of the redeeming features he usually employed (cameraderie, loyalty), though there were moments here and there...

I now conclude that post with some pages from issues 4 and 5, and in particular the last pages of the last issue (The earlier pages are basically to support those). Be warned there is some Nazi imagery under the cut, if such things cause you problems you may wish to avoid this.

Yeah... right (Okay, that's a cheap shot, I know they modified it to a gender neutral form in 1987 when ST:TNG came along, but given IDW's upcoming story it seemed apt)

Chances are that if you owned ANY DC licensed merchandise in the late 70's or early 80's it either featured art by, or based on, work done by Jose-Luis Garcia-Lopez and Dick Giordano, two stalwarts of the organisation, who produced acres of top notch, lovely licensing art.

The art would be used from notepads to action figures, from t-shirts to underoos, and so had to be both simple and stylish, easily reproduced and instantly recognisable. They could hardly have asked for better!

The attached pics are scanned as best I can, and hopefully might bring a little happiness to your desktop should you wish to tweak them that way.

Continuing my series of DC licensing images by the legend which is Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez

These are all pre-Crisis reboot, but post the change from eagle-crest to double-W chest logo. So she still has the ridiculous heels, but that's life.
Enjoy! )
