Bow's amazing shot #1

Bruce Timm strikes again! This time his artwork blesses the She-Ra minicomic "Adventure of the Blue Diamond". In this beautifully laid out page we get to see Bow demonstrating just how expert a marksman he really is! In this story Etheria's sun is blocked out by the power of the Blue Diamond and in the conclusion of the story Bow attaches the diamond to his arrow and fires it at the sun! The way the panels are illustrated presents one of the tensest moments of any He-Man or She-Ra minicomic. Not often would a page be paced like this, and even when the page ends the reader has no idea if the shot has succeeded until they turn the page!

The standouts for me include the concerned expression on Bow's face, in the close-up shot, and the "back and forth" format, showing The Rebels zooming out, on the left, and the arrow disappearing into the darkness, on the right!

Thanks for posting and reading! God Bless...
