Throwing Rattlor!

Bruce Timm was heavily referencing his hero Jack Kirby when it came to illustrating the Masters of the Universe minicomic "Snake Attack!" Examples are abundant in this panel, not only with the bold composition, but with the famous "Kirby squiggles" that appear on He-Man's belt and gauntlets...

You can see that Rattlor was thrown at such tremendous force, as He-Man appears to be nearly falling to the ground! Great drama captured in this illustration. :)

Thanks for reading! God Bless...

The Search for Keldor is my favorite Bruce Timm He man minicomic.
Inker Steve Mitchell did a fantastic job, his inks are so loose and gracious, they go so well on Timm's pencils. On page 7 the Skeletor saying " I am Skeletor and i shall teach you the meaning of Fear" looks Awesome!!
