Fighting the Kobolds.

"Slave City!" will always go down as one of the most action-packed Masters of the Universe minicomics produced for the toyline. These panels, illustrated by Larry Houston, really show the ferocity in which both He-Man and Battle Cat race into battle, displaying absolutely no mercy against the unique-looking Kobold warriors! The tiny figures and landscape of the first panel create a wonderful sense of exposition, whilst the final panel would not look out of place in a Marvel comic book from the eighties!

Now that's some kind of force! Excellent job on the different purple tones used for the Kobold warriors. :) I believe that this was the story that was based on, or similar to, "A Tale of Two Cities," in the Filmation cartoon, and that the Kobolds were used in place of the Gargon soldiers. :) Thanks for reading and God Bless! ~"KevyGuy" :)

Awesome sequence. I have heard that with figures packaged with the Slave City minicomic, Mattel had to position the figures so they obscured the cover as best as possible, as the cover was so violent that they feared it would put parents off buying the figures for their kids!
