The Flying Sword #1

For your entertainment here is a story originally presented in the 1987 UK Masters of the Universe annual. The artist was Paul Green who worked on many an annual; and other pieces of licensed property. If you look carefully you will see that quite a few panels pay homage to the Masters of the Universe comics released by DC Comics many years earlier. Here are pages one to three of this colorful tale!

For me, the team of Skeletor, Evil-Lyn, and Tri-Klops is one of my favorite villain combinations ... Too bad it's only a brief time all three are seen together in "The Royal Cousin." I like how the word "Friend" turns up twice in this story, especially when our heroes jokingly use this word to describe Skeletor! In regard to the one guy who says his people are peaceful and cannot fight, I'm surprised that He-Man didn't take the "One For All" or "Duel At Devlan" approach and encourage the villagers to stand up for themselves and take action, or say something like, "We need all the help we can get." :) I love when the artists go all out with the colors, shadow effects included!
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

The last panel of He-Man with the word "Scream" always made me laugh. It reminded me of a back "Zoom", "POW", and "Blam" from classic comics.
