    "The triumph of Skeletor" minicomics by Danbrenus

    This is the cover of my very first minicomic, my intention is to, humbly, continue the early storyline of MOTU, the barbarian He-man story.
    I'll post the pages daily, it will be as the first four mini were, one illustration with text below, the first page will come roughly this evening.

    Page 3 & 4:

    The idea of Skeletor who goes to the cavern of the Sorceress to extort the location of the sword, and the fight between them came directly from the first issue of the DC miniseries "to tempt the gods", I always liked how Skeletor was powerfull, scary and defiant in these comics, maybe my favourite ever.

    Here Skeletor sees the two halves of the power sword enchased in a cristal boulder, this concept is shown in the minicomic "masks of power", I'll reuse and re-tool recurring concept just as Don Glutt did in his run.
    "the triumph of Skeletor" take place somewhere between the third and the fourth minicomics, it will explain how the two sword come back to Eternia, why and how Tee-la gains his cobra armor and will feature Zodac, giving him the spotlight he missed in the first run.
    I learned how to draw in those little Alcala masterworks, this is just an humble homage

    The art is brilliant.

    With the text, you need to double-space or indent every new paragraph and new speaker.

    Page 5 & 6:

    As someone may notice, Zodac sits on his classic chair, the actual throne of Grayskull indeed. And the insides of the outpost are taken by de design of Point Dread, as, in "danger of castle Grayskull" (minicomic of the Talon Fighter and Point Dread playset)he's intended to be connected with,as he led He-man there.

    The news about Zodac are that in the original concept he was no "godlike observer" but a more action character, a "cosmic bounty hunter" in the early concept art, so I depitc him that way.
    He's always an outwordly guardian but he's definitely a good guy, he takes part in battles, he shots his cosmic blaster and, more important of all, he's back on his feet!
