How gruesome!

In this panel from the Masters of the Universe minicomic "Grizzlor: The Legend Comes Alive!" Bruce Timm beautifully illustrates a scared Teela. Once again even though this is very early in Bruce Timm's career, many of his artistic traits are already in place; from Teela's expression in the second panel, to her somewhat somber expression in the third panel. Also, Man-At-Arms' face is a fine example of Bruce Timm's ability to make the male characters look incredibly heroic. I should also acknowledge the coloring in this panel which is beautiful, and really creates a wonderful sense of mood as the Heroic Warriors are camped around a fire.

Yes, that is a beautifully illustrated Teela ... Reminds me of the Disney princess characters. :) Buzz-Off seems to have better expressions here than in the cartoon and Man-At-Arms seems way out of character as he appears to be a little TOO "happy go lucky" on this occasion! Very impressive artwork and color, though. :)
