A Shadow over Etheria #2

Here are pages four to six of a story that appeared in issue thirteen of the UK Princess of Power comic titled "A Shadow over Etheria". With a title like that it will come as no surprise to learn that this story explains Shadow Weaver's origin, touching upon what had already been established in the UK comics over the years. Unlike the cartoon Light Spinner's transformation into the evil being is a tragic one...

A Shadow over Etheria #1

Here are pages one to three of a story that appeared in issue thirteen of the UK Princess of Power comic titled "A Shadow over Etheria". With a title like that it will come as no surprise to learn that this story explains Shadow Weaver's origin, touching upon what had already been established in the UK comics over the years.

A simple transformation...

Glenn Steward illustrated a traditional, yet very simple-looking transformation in the Ladybird book "She-Ra and the Golden Goose". When compared to Robin Davies' transformation images this does not pack quite the same punch. Interestingly the background is very similar to the original She-Ra introduction where we see the Princess of Power with her sword raised in front of the beautiful Etherian sky...

Sprigget?

In the script for the season two She-Ra episode "One To Count On" the role of Sprint was originally assigned to a new Twigget named Sprigget. During production this new character was dropped and Sprint was used in his place. This explains why in the actual episode Sprint's voice is different when compared to his original appearance in the season one episode "A Loss for Words".

Chained Evil!

Here is an amusing illustration drawn by Ladybird book artist Robin Davies for "Warlord of Eternia", a story that appeared in the one-off annual. It is very rare that we get to see Skeletor in such a situation, but what I like most is the Lord of Destruction's pitiful look...

A rare, quiet moment...

Here is a beautifully illustrated panel from the DC minicomic "The Terror of Tri-Klops!" And if you know anything about the DC minicomics you will know that there were not many quiet moments for the Eternians to enjoy. The composition of this image is perfect, as is the dialogue between He-Man and Teela. I do like the fact that after becoming friends with He-Man and the Heroic Warriors, Ram Man appears alongside them with a completely different mindset than his previous one...

Too late!

I'm not entirely sure why, but I love this panel featuring Catra from the She-Ra minicomic "Adventure of the Blue Diamond". I think it has something to do with the level of detail and the almost-maniacal expression of Catra that makes this illustration a winner. Then again we expect nothing but the best from Bruce Timm...
