Out of a job.

This artist, during his run on the UK Masters of the Universe comic, would always finish a story with a lovely panel which either sums up the story or shows the heroes relaxing after another hard day's work. Issue fifty-eight features the heroes relaxing, outside of the Royal Palace grounds, as Orko reveals that Prince Adam cannot be like He-Man, otherwise he would put the champion of Eternia out of a job! Again, like so many of these stories from this artist's run, the colors are beautiful throughout the panel.

These comics were printed in the Swedish "Masters of the Universe" comic as well.

The artist who did the issues your last two posts took art from was called Juan Escandell, born in Spain. He was a long-time comics artist who had been working in the medium on a multitude of comics ever since the 60's. Thus he was quite a honed draftsman and quickly learned to draw very toy-accurate versions of MOTU characters and vehicles.

Keep up the good work on the blog!

Love the joke! Would have been perfect for the Orko comic strips. :) Nice "Whispering Woods" color theme used for the setting in this illustration, too! :)
Thanks for reading! God Bless!
