GIANT Picture Book (Heroic Warriors) illustration #8

Golden Book published a great deal of Masters of the Universe material during the eighties. Two of the most notable and yet rarely seen books are the Giant Picture Books; oversized quality publications printed on thick quality paper featuring artwork by Fred Carrillo. One book focused on the Heroic Warriors, whilst the other focused on the Evil Warriors. Here I present, from the Heroic Warriors book, the first of the two black and white illustrations focusing on Teela, resized for you to enjoy! The way in which Teela's body is positioned as she swings her sword, knocking Mer-Man's sword from his hand, is fantastic.

Agreed! Mer-Man's "surrender" pose is amusing as well. :)
