"Nightmares!" #1

Here I present an interesting story from issue sixteen of the UK Masters of the Universe Adventure magazine. "Nightmares!" is an interesting story in which Prince Adam finds himself the victim of terrifying dreams. The initial nightmare that featuers Skeletor and his Evil Warriors has a shockingly dramatic end from which Prince Adam awakens! The problem with this story is that it feels like it could have been much longer. The nightmare situation seems to be resolved very quickly, as if the writer ran out of room in which to tell the story! Here are the first four pages...

Perfect and fantastic use of color variety throughout the story! What I have seen so far reminds me of excerpts taken from a few Season One He-Man episodes: First, Prince Adam struggling to get through the dessert reminds me of Nepthu in the same predicament at the beginning of "Temple of the Sun." Then, when he is chased by the random creatures it reminds me of the beasts that chase both Cringer and Orko in "Disappearing Act." Finally, when Adam wakes up and talks about his nightmares, it is just like "Eternal Darkness." Interesting how Adam sleeps in his regular attire, as opposed to a few episodes in the cartoon. Finally, I really like the room with the comfy chairs and the fireplace, where Adam talks to Man-At-Arms ... Great place to be on a cold winter day! :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

This story definitely deserved to be longer and would have been a great idea for an episode.
