Heroic run.

During his time on the Masters of the Universe minicomics Bruce Timm showed numerous examples of classic comic book artwork; he was clearly an artist who had grown up reading Marvel Comics. His influences were clear to be seen in each and every illustration. Here is a panel from "Enter: Buzz-Saw Hordak!" in which we see He-Man running towards us. He-Man's physicality and his pose, and the spot black shading on the figure, are clearly influenced by the late great Jack Kirby!

Sorceress has the "super model" legs. :) I get a kick out of the dramatic pose of the character on the far left! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Jack "King" Kirby was an influence on so many - I'd have loved to have seen him tackle illustrating a MOTU story, if you look at his work on a title like Fantastic Four his style was perfect - that would have been something truly special! :)

I have to agree, I can see an influence of Jack Kirby. My opinion is , that is why Bruce's art in the mini-comics made the books come to life with lots of energy.
