"A New Beginning" #2

Here I present pages five to eight of the story that changed the life of He-Man in the UK Masters of the Universe Adventure magazine! "A New Beginning" marked the start of The New Adventures of He-Man and the magazine title was changed simply to He-Man. In this story we see how He-Man and Skeletor leave Eternia, amass their respective forces, and start their ongoing war in the Tri-Solar Galaxy! Amazingly it appears that Skeletor already knows that Prince Adam is He-Man before this story even begins, as Skeletor does not even remark on the transformation sequence!

The phrase 'something is wrong' was a bit of a giveaway.

It's like a "Dawn of Dragoon" moment in the beginning, when Prince Adam attempts to make the transformation ... Fortunately it actually works on this occasion, but not in a way expected! I also get a kick out of He-Man's sarcastic remark about hearing, in the last panel. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

I always thought it was rather odd how Skeletor showed no surprise at seeing Adam change into He-Man. We could have done with a cameo from The Sorceress here to explain He-Man's new form and powers. It was great how the UK comics portrayed Brakk and Kalamarr as competent and threatening villains though, the cartoon made them so bumbling and useless that they didn't even seem genuinely evil.
