"The Disappearance of Madame Razz!" #1

For your entertainment I present the story "The Disappearance of Madame Razz!" as featured in issue three of the UK Princess of Power comic. In this story Madame Razz, tired of her friends laughing at her, casts the spell of visa'lity to prove that she still has what it takes. Unfortunately the spell fails to work correctly and Madame Razz finds herself both invisible and blind. There are some very amusing visual gags in this story showing objects affected by Madame Razz's invisible state. In this story there is an incredibly accurate explanation as to why Madame Razz is suddenly blind when invisible. Here are the first three pages of this story...

Critics analyzing H. G. Wells' classic novel The Invisible Man, and the film version starring Claude Rains, have often pointed out that the invisible man should have been blind, due to light passing through his eyes rather than them absorbing it. Wells was the first writer to make a character invisible by scientific means, as invisibility in fiction beforehand had always been achieved by magic- and he did seem to have taken the blindness issue into account, as it is briefly mentioned in the book that a faint portion of the lead character's eyes do remain visible. Whenever a character becomes invisibly by magic (i.e. Skeletor in "Disappearing Act") I always assume they've avoided becoming blind by magical means, so it's interesting to see Madame Razz here achieve the state of invisibility through magic, but still fall prey to the scientific disadvantages of the condition!

The dialog in this story sounds like it could pass for a script to an actual She-Ra episode ... Broom's dialog is excellent, and when Madame Razz becomes blind, she utters a line similar to Ram-Man, from the He-Man episode, "Not So Blind!" Yet again, I love the artwork for She-Ra, during her transformation. :)
