SPRAK!

I still believe that these two panels from the classic minicomic "The Search for Keldor" really pushed the boundaries of He-Man storytelling. Not only do we see a previously one dimensional King Randor nearly sacrifice his life to save the Sorceress, but we also get to see an extreme piece of violence as Faker is speared! These two panels show how these final Masters of the Universe stories were elevating themselves back to the standards set by the DC minicomics...

Ouch! That's gotta leave a mark! This image takes me back to the 03 April 2006 post titled, "The robotic ouch!" Once again, Faker suffers a similar fate! His expression of horror is priceless!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...

This is one of my favorite minicomic moments. Randor taking down Faker. Heck yeah.

Maybe it was like the Filmation episode "The Shaping Staff" (Faker's lone Filmation appearance), where it was felt it was okay to harm / kill him because he was only a robot.

Either way, any Faker appearance is good with me!
