A battle royal!

The original DC Masters of the Universe minicomics were very clever. Growing up I had just assumed they were random stories that never really built to anything, and were merely there to give a little backstory to the toys that they accompanied. However, the incredibly rare minicomic "The Tale of Teela!", which many of us did not own in our youth, is revealed to be the culmination of the previous minicomics. The heroes and villains, that have been introduced one by one over the course of the DC minicomics, all appear in one single story. And the result is pretty spectacular! Mark Texeira's artwork is beautiful throughout, and the story itself is simply sublime. This panel wonderfully sums up just how much happens in this one single minicomic...

Nice use of shadows on He-Man. :) Mer-Man's pose is the best! Interesting color scheme used for Trap Jaw, although I prefer the Filmation color scheme better. :)
