That's Mer-Man?!

"Leech - The Master of Power Suction Unleashed!" is one of the worst Masters of the Universe minicomics ever produced. The artwork, while unique, seems to change style from panel to panel, as does the look of characters. The story is also incredibly questionable with events making little to no sense. Aside from Leech's ever-changing size and look, one of the other big questions about this minicomic is what happened to Mer-Man? In this story we see the Ocean Warlord given a completely different look, specifically with regards to his head! In this one minicomic we see the villain sporting a beard! The panels showcased below are not even the worst of it. Later in the book Mer-Man's beard is as long as Zagraz's!

Ha, ha! :) Mer-Man has a human nose too! What a contrast from the way he looked in the coloring book illustration with Teela. :)

I remember that. On top of the ugly artwork in the German version there were lots of translation- and grammar-errors, too.

I always remember that, and it was the most awful interpretation of Mer-Man ever. Along with everything else in that comic :-)
