She-Ra calls out for the Sorceress.

"Shadow Weaver's Magic Mirror" features a lot of memorable illustrations by Robin Davies, but none are as beautiful as this two page piece featuring She-Ra and the Sorceress. There are so many things to appreciate about this piece; the angle of She-Ra with her sword raised, the beautiful way in which the Sorceress is drawn; even the way in which the two pages are laid out. Robin Davies manages to illustrate the magical embers coming fourth from the sword to perfection! Amazingly this is the only time that the Sorceress appears in the Ladybird books, having not appeared in any of the Masters of the Universe ones. Her only appearance prior to this was in one-shot Masters of the Universe annual published by Ladybird.

I always loved that illustration. The tape that came with that book was very atmospheric and made that scene extra vivid.

And I must admit I always felt there was something sexual about that illustration... both characters appear in a state of dream-like arousal...

Another gorgeous illustration ... This angle of She-Ra, during the transformation, would have looked awesome in the cartoon, but She looks awesome here to begin with! The "outer space" background really works well with the characters. :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!

Everything about this spread is awesome! I mean, it's great that the Sorceress was featured to begin with, but, then, the layout is brilliant on top of that!

This piece of art is the stuff dreams are made of. For things like that, there are no more words.

The Sorceress is looking very lovely in this! Like the colors in it too!

What a wonderful picture. But are they are fantasizing about something or someone.
