Dazzler #15 (1982)

With this issue, Bill Sienkiewicz starts doing the covers. And they are all magnificent. Sadly, it’s a bit of lipstick-on-a-pig.

The interior art is still by Frank Springer and the stories are still subpar.

Dazzler is on a U.S. tour opening for a big pop star, and while in San Francisco she spots a van adorned with a picture of a piece of jewelry that her mother owned.  So she hires Spider-Woman, who is an SF-based private eye, to track down the van. They end up finding an abandoned SHIELD base and together they work through the base’s defenses.

The implication is that Dazzler’s mother worked for SHIELD.

Throughout this issue, Dazzler never reveals her powers to Spider-Woman.
