Queen Marlena cries out!

This dramatic Queen Marlena illustration by Robin Davies appeared in "The Curse of Crystal Mountain" from the one-off Masters of the Universe Ladybird annual. Queen Marlena did not have that many illustrations in the Ladybird books so it is nice to see her appear so prominently; even if it is in such bad circumstances.

Looks like she may be yawning, also! Gotta love illustrations of spilt drinks too. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Four of the stories from this annual were also released as a special "double-audio cassette" pack - one of my most treasured possessions as a kid! :) I still have the tapes, although sadly they've seen better days! :(

This is such an awesome image--there were few times where it looked like someone from the primary cast was legitimately suffering from something. And Her Majesty certain looks to be in pain here!

Some say this is case of overacting.

I say, who cares Queen Marlena looks exellent in this picture.

Very unusual to see Queen Marlena drawn. I loved her incarnation in the 200x cartoon and the drawing here is fantastic.

Queen Marlena overreacts I would say. But she's allowed to, she's the queen after all.

It is rare to see depictions of Queen Marlena, and I like any we can get. She looks like she saw a ghost with that expression :-)
