He-Man strikes Skeletor!

Here is a fantastic illustration from "The Revenge of Skeletor!", a minicomic from The New Adventures of He-Man toyline! In one of Bruce Timm's last ever illustrations on the He-Man brand he made sure he went out with a bang, by having He-Man race towards Skeletor and strike the villain with a great sense of ferocity and power! Also, I've mentioned time and time again Jack Kirby's influence on Timm's work. Nowhere can it be seen better than in the smaller panel with He-Man holding the Sword of Power. We can see the "Kirby Crackle", an artistic trademark indicated by black dots of varying sizes, emanating from the blade.
