The Salem 7, from Fantastic 4 #186! by dusty-abell The Salem 7, from Fantastic 4 #186! by dusty-abell
I FINALLY got to draw The Salem 7! An amazing group created by the incredible George Perez for an ultra quick 3 page appearance in FF #186 (cover dated Sept. 1977) The cover immediately grabbed my attention as a kid, so mission accomplished on that front! How lucky must a writer be to have George working with him or her when they know he can create an ENTIRE team, group or world of memorable characters, even if they were only ever intended to be throw aways, making just the briefest of appearances inside a book, like the Salem 7 did.
These were drawn for the super fun little blog project called The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe-Reduxe Edition ohotmuredux.blogspot.com/
Do you have a favorite group of characters that haven't necessarily been in the spotlight a whole bunch?

Oh that takes me back.... Salem's 7 showed up just a couple of months back, now working as the defenders of New Salem, which has become something of a haven for the mystical and weird offshoots of the Marvel Universe, in the first issue of the New Warriors! :)

Great job, they've never looked better.  Always wanted to see Reptillia (I think) team up with Slither, Constrictor and the two vipers with Sons of the Serpent henchmen, fight The Serpent Society. 

I think the Mutant Force/Resistants were a great group and Fangs! :)

I'd definitely read whatever they were in. I'm super intrigued by their appearances.
