The Catscope!

The rarely-seen four story She-Ra Ladybird compilation book was interesting in that aside from including two new stories, it included two previously published stories in "Catra's Ice Palace" and "She-Ra and the Golden Goose", renamed "The Golden Goose" for this publication. The most striking thing about "Catra's Ice Palace" is that due to the size of this compilation book being a different format, the illustrations that accompanied the story were completely redrawn. Previously the story had been illustrated by Geoff Senior, but this time Glenn Steward illustrated it, to tie into the fact that the other three stories in the compilation were illustrated by him! In this illustration we see that high atop the Fright Zone, in her own personal tower, Catra has the Catscope; a ridiculously large telescope that she uses to spy upon her enemies. I like the way in which Clawdeen is perched with her paws resting on the ledge.

Great color and detail on The Catscope, which looks like it is made out of gold, plus I like how content Clawdeen looks. :)

What a fun picture. I love the idea of Catra using a Catscope to spy high atop her own tower. Anytime there is a picture of Clawdeen is always a good thing too! Great post!

Nice kitty...but did they rewrite the story and not just redraw the pics? Because, and I quote Clawdeen from the page before Catscope is introduced in the Ladybird book: "I do not like snow. It gets in my fur and freezes my pads."
