Creepy Kowl...

There are some illustrations in the worlds of He-Man and She-Ra that actually turn my stomach. This is one of them! Kowl is supposed to be cute, with a somewhat gruff side. Here, in the Princess of Power minicomic "Disappearing Treasures", Kowl looks wrong on so many levels. Firstly, his entire face appears to have caved in; secondly, his limbs are almost too long; and thirdly, what is going on with his crazy eyes? The art throughout this minicomic is far from bad, but the depiction of Kowl is often questionable...

Looks like Kowl is really building up his muscles! Nice job on the line effects that create the shadows. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

How very strange! Did someone just not like Kowl and draw him this way? Very unusual to see Kowl look less vibrant than he was in the Filmation series

The depiction of Kowl in the POP mini-comics (not just this image but the mini's in general) always baffled me as a child - I never realised that the mini's actually came before the Filmation continuity! :)
