I really enjoyed it myself (Moon Spinner is cool), except did anyone LOL at the part where Man-At-Arms is Captain of The Masters of the Universe?

Brilliant find LFE!
Thanks so much for posting this.
I couldn't get pages 1,2, or 5 to work on the website... Maybe they don't exist?
I just downloaded the art, and am looking forward to reading it as soon as I can.
Love obscure stuff like this.

That IS INDEED a rare and fantastic discovery!! Thank you for all the images!! I love reading these sorts of stories, and since MOTUC has flexed our imaginations with new origins being made from multiple sources, reading this seems cool, even if it is pretty much off any of the usual origin-charts.
I've actually known about these for quite a while now and actually have one of the pages, lack of money has actually kept me from buying anymore. The page I really want I can't get right now and if I find out one of you buys it I'm going to be PMing you with offers to wash your car for a year in order to try and get it from you.
The pages are quite a bit larger than standard comic pages and seemed to be inked with a marker. I really like Tez and his girl, they're my favorite characters in this. I agree with you guys, this origin is awesome and it NEEDS to be posted on the .org. Good job getting them all together. I'm left wondering if Mattel can access these characters for inclusion into the Classics line since they were never published.
I'll admit to being a bit envious of you guys because you discovered my secret stash but at least fans are getting in on the deal. Anyway,watch out, I may be PMing one of you.

I really like it, an origin story for He-Man of any kind is always exciting.
Also, the old man looks like Master Sebrian!

I saw these a couple months ago, but questioned the validity of them because I have never seen or heard anything about them before. Nice to hear some theories on them and learn that they are actually authentic and not some fan fic. Interesting to see how many pages have sold in this one day alone since this thread started as well. These had been sitting untouched on ebay for some time. Good buys to all that are snagging pages. At slightly more than a classics figure these things are a steal!

i couldnt find these auctions. how much were they going for if people dont mind me asking. PM if you dont want to post. i am just curious.
ha yeah i noticed that. it just jumped out at me. This DEF has to be one of the first mentions that the good guys are name "the Masters of the Universe"
I want NA Skeletor and Rio Blast and I want them now!
I'm not sure if it's a no-no to post ebay auctions so I'll pm it to you...
And they range from as crazy low as $30 up to $70-$80 (and $300 for the 2 page splash).
What a wonderful find, these are awesome! I'm only at page 16 but whoever was responsible for creating this really infused a sense of history and even the potential for epic scale storytelling. I imagine that if this had actually made it to print it would've been a fan favorite depiction of He-Man.
Moonspinner reminds me of Cogline from Terry Brooks' Shannara series. Moonspinner seems like he would have been a really interesting character if this comic had been a series.
- Pg. 24 Just a thought, the character called Anom might later have become Beastman. Notice he uses what looks to be an energized whip on the [Battle] cat upon failing to ride it, and while clearly human his garb his highly suggestive of Beastman's.
- I like how the demons [pages 8 and 30] are seen to sometimes express a single thought/sentence through different individuals. It helps them stand apart from run of the mill demon/gargoyle henchman.

What a discovery! This is something very cool.
I love reading stuff like this. With MOTU there is always something that pops up. Even after all these years.
I am telling you I am lovin' those Demons.
