Skeletor atop the ramparts!

Over the years that I have worked on this Blog I have come to have a greater appreciation for the work that Mark Texeira contributed to the Masters of the Universe minicomics. Sadly, his name is rarely championed as one of the great artists that worked on the brand. This panel from the minicomic "The Tale of Teela!", featuring Skeletor and Teela, as well as Castle Grayskull and the Talon Fighter, is an example of how Texeira could create iconic images in such a small space. One has only to flick through the pages of a Texeira-illustrated minicomics to see just the phenomenal level of craftsmanship that he put into each and every illustration.

Teela's hairstyle looks great here, close to Adora's. :) Excellent pose used for Skeletor and it reminds me of the stock animation of He-Man's stock sword chop often used in the Filmation cartoon. :)
