Orko's sword of might!

Here are some comically illustrated storyboard panels by Rich Chidlaw from the season one He-Man episode "The Region of Ice". What I love about these panels is the way in which Orko's expressive eyes are drawn, notably in panels three, four, and five! Also, compare this sequence to the produced episode; in these panels we see that it was illustrated so that Orko's sword was a replica of the Sword of Power, whereas in the actual episode it was animated as a rather mundane-looking sword.

Yes, Orko's "tough guy" expression in panel four was wonderfully captured! This scene definitely would have been more memorable if, say a mini version of the Sword of Power was used. :)

I bet you posted this to see how many people say something about the line beneath the fifth panel, haha!
