Ok, i couldn't help myself. I had to look up this Meet Misty series. And it turns out that despite being a Star comic, it might even technically sort of be in continuity. Because Misty appears to be the niece of Millie the Model. And as you can see in the image below, she even has her own Chili Storm.

You can also see the "Misty's outfit designed by..." stuff that was a trademark of Millie's comic.

Also pretty amazingly, the series (not a single issue of which is available at mycomicshop.com!) was written and drawn by Trina Robbins, the underground comix artist and co-creator of Vampirella.

Finally, i chose this particular cover because it seems to repurpose an image that was already used twice in Dazzler, first in Dazzler #31...

...and then again in her graphic novel.

It's such a weird image it sticks in my head. Maybe it's not a "swipe". Maybe that's a real thing aerobics people did in the 80s and it's just a coincidence. I did some google image searches but felt creepy about it.

Anyway, that's what i've learned about Misty. You may now go back about your lives, which are now richer and fuller thanks to this new knowledge.
