Slushhead flees!

Here are three action-packed illustrations by Bruce Timm from "The Revenge of Skeletor!", a minicomic from The New Adventures of He-Man toyline! The third panel of Slushhead swimming towards the reader, with Hydron in the Astrosub in pursuit, is wonderfully structured, and looks like something out of the Marvel comic books of the sixties. There are two things this minicomic does which we never really saw featured in the animated series. Firstly, we see the Astrosub go underwater, a feature rarely used in the cartoon. And secondly, we see Slushhead swim away at great speed, again something rarely seen in the cartoon!
