Catra shakes fist!

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 atmospheric illustration we see Catra angrily shake her fist in the direction of the Crystal Castle, as the Fright Zone is a miserable place to be in the winter...

Ha, ha! :) Simply love the anger captured for Catra's mouth! Looks like her gloves are made out of metal, as the shading is very impressive. :) The location also looks like one of the towers of Castle Grayskull!
