Orko's comic strip #04

Almost every issue of the UK Masters of the Universe comic featured an Orko comic strip on the inside front cover. As this Blog continues I will try and feature all of them for your amusement. Here I present the "Orko the Magician" comic strip from issue four. Enjoy Orko once again making King Randor's life an entertaining one!

I always found it interesting how they actually showed Orko's mouth through his muffler thing on those early strips.

See, if the strip ended with the second frame, then it would be slightly amusing, but all the fun is sucked out of the joke by Orko reflecting, explaining the joke, writing a dissertation on the situation and finally summing up. This is one of the reasons I really can't stand the UK comics; if you have to explain your joke, then it isn't that funny in the first place.

However, He-Man isn't the only comic guilty of this, and, for shame, one of the biggest offenders is MASK.

Looks like this scene took place within the Temple Of The Sun, according to the background!

Funny how Orko uses the word "magic" as a verb, and not a noun, here. :)

More brilliant colors in this image, once again! :)

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
