Valley of the Lost #1

The Valley of the Lost was an odd Etherian location. Initially it was written to be a place of dread that no one ever returns from, but as the series progresses we see that pretty much anyone can return from the valley. Often thought to be just a misty location this striking image from "The Rock People" shows the valley in all its glory! Not only is this a great composition with the heroes looking out into the distance, but the Filmation background artists prove once again that they can take a description and turn it into something truly magical, if not a little eerie.

Once again, a job well done on another spooky location in the He-Man and She-Ra world ... Just like the Plains of Perpetua ("Song Of Celice"), Castle Ackle ("Orko's Missing Magic"), The Valley Of Echoes ("The Toy Maker"), and the bridge setting in "Hunt For He-Man," The Valley Of The Lost makes for another amazing, mysterious, and otherworldly location!

Is that the Yellow Brick Road from "The Wizard Of Oz" dead center of this image??? (j/k) :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

Terrific image.

Really eerie scene. The name sounds also very epic and would have been nice to see it featured more in the show. :)
