"The Greatest Sacrifice" #1

In many of the canons Snout Spout was never given decent material. However, in the UK Masters of the Universe comic Snout Spout was given a couple of character defining stories. The first was his two-part origin story, which I have already featured on this Blog. The other story was this one, "The Greatest Sacrifice" from issue forty-one, which really shows the lengths Snout Spout will go to for his friends. Here are the first four pages of this story...

Mystika is a very beautifully drawn character and reminds me of Teela ... I also thought that she was Flutterina when I first saw her. :) Snout Spout's human form looks a lot like Prince Adam and Rio Blast looks like Bow! Nice science lesson from Hordak and I like how the references to previous stories were included in a couple of the captions. :)

This story is pretty moving at times, if tragic... You couldn't imagine Filmation ever having gone with Snout Spout's tragic origin story, though I'd have loved it if they had done episodes this heavy!

The subplot in this story with Grizzlor thinking he is wealthy is amusing and adds a much-needed touch of humour to the story.
