We return to Eternia but we also return to the pre-minicomics, the illustrated booklets of series 1. Four of these were produced and tonight, via He-Man.org, we’ll be looking at the third one. To recap this continuity: He-Man went out from his home village to protect Castle Grayskull because it was Tuesday or something (seriously, no reason is given), and comes across a green-skinned Goddess who gives him a power-boosting harness, a harness that creates force fields and looks exactly the same as the power-boosting harness (I wonder if he ever mixed those up?), and the Battle Ram vehicle. Skeletor comes from another dimension and wants to use the power of Grayskull to open a portal to his home dimension so he can lead an army to conquer Eternia because it’s there and they don’t own it.
This story focuses on those gifts He-Man was given and gives Mer-Man something to do in this story besides stand around. It’s a story in which the heroes look foolish until the final act. Must be Friday the 13th on Eternia.
He-Man insists you pay for your airline tickets.
