Those Most Precious Jewels

So there I was on the weekend, catching up with some back issues of Infinity, Inc from the late 80s (because that’s how I spend the ridiculously hot yet rare summer days here in the UK) when I came across #42.

Fury is pregnant (and most everyone knows how that turns out) so is taking some time off, and the rest of the team organise a going away beach party for her. Wildcat, as a rock magazine journalist, hires a band to play at the party and we get a splash page of the team enjoying themselves in civvies:

It’s nice to see a group of heroes relaxing every now and then as it makes a change from the constant round of battle after battle.

That said, I have to admit I did a double take when I noticed the name of the band:

Now I don’t know if that’s there because of Roy and Dann Thomas, the writers, or whether one of the artists slipped it in for the hell of it, but The Family Jewels . . . honestly!?

Whoever did it had some balls, that’s all I can say.
