Causing a cave-in!

I love the action and power in these two panels by Bruce Timm from the Masters of the Universe minicomic "King of the Snake Men". You can see a lot of his style in these minicomics which were illustrated incredibly early in his career. If you pay particular attention to the face of He-Man you can see the very heroic jaw line that Bruce Timm would later utilize on his design for Batman on the now-classic animated series of the nineties. I am always amazed just how much energy Bruce Timm was able to pack into these tiny panels. When one looks back over the plethora of Masters of the Universe minicomics for the best, one will often find Bruce Timm's name attached to it!

You're right, James ... He-Man does have that Batman look to his face, and he kind of reminds me of Superman too! The color variety and text are both amazing, yet again. :) Looks like the villains are already doomed and I get a kick out of the comical worried expression on the Snake Man's face! :)
