    The feedback I received for "the Triumph of Skeletor" (here and on DeviantArt) is astonishing, thanks to you all.
    I just wished to revive the oldest of the canon and give old timers like me something to read (and dream) on the original and never forgotten barbarian He-man.
    Great artists like Baena, 2bad, Jafari Stew, Slohcin, Mike Bock, TheBlock, Carlosdeanda, Lee-man, Jukka, Sha, TheRaw, Granamir, Wolfsgang ecc, have shown me praise and approval and that's a great satisfaction for me, probably the best ever, so thank you.

    Does anyone have some dislike about how I developed the plot? You like my take on Zodac, the Sorceress and the return of the power swords?
    I tried not to add anything to what was already there in the beginning, did I succedd?

    You could give the Power Sword to He-Man too, but I think you will do it in the next one

    I like to see the way you pictured Zodac inside Point Dread, because is were my Zodac lives too

    I would like to see more kinds of pictures shot, they look all like medium shot.

    ( I hope you can understand what I try to say about the picture shot, if not: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shot_%28filming%29)

    Overall is a great story and a love your work, as you already know
    Now available for commissions.

    Oh! I'm 7 yers old again too! This was like the missing part of the storyline. Teela getting her Kobra Armour. Zodac portrayed just like he was in those old free comics they got in Germany back in the days! Skeletor using halv of the Powersword! And Spirit of Grayskull!

    Danbrenus, every part of this story is in right place!

    Thanks my friends, the old times feeling you all talk about is exactily what I was trying to make you feel, I'm really glad I made it right, thanks again.
    Great artist and friend Jukka photoshopped my back cover turning it into a really effective work, enjoy and give the man the credit he deserves.

    Well ya would think that but alas I've gotten burned all too often for me not to ask first.

    My only crit was that I notice all your heads seem rather on the large side. Now this may be a deliberate thing or it could just be that you are trying to capture the proportions of the vintage figures.

    I personally would prefer smaller heads as I think it will make your characters look beefier and even more in line with Alcala's style.

    You have the style nailed man so this is just being picky.

    You are right pal, but the choices were big heads or short legs (I noticed it was altrernately common in the minicomics) and I prefered big heads.
    But don't thinks it's an error, I'm an historical reenactor and me and my friends wear battle helmets and various head gear and I assure you a head nearly doubles with a steel helm with inner leather and fabbric protection.
    The great (and sadly, late) Angus McBride, one the world greatest historical illustrator knew that well, and his warriors have all, seemingly, big heads.
    Thanks for the critics, as I said, an artist must use it to grow better.
    ...and for the He-man head, remember, he has the most powerfull hairs in the universe...I guess.

    Sorry for being late - pretty much everything seems to have been said already, so you'll just have to add this one to the list: these look great! You really nailed the vibe of those barbarian comics right down to the colors.
    These should be released with the 'Classics' line or something.
    If there is one good bone in your body you'll send help.

    Man, thank'you very much. I'd really like to see new minicomics but I don't think the canon I refer is right for the new line.

    I'd like to, if daily job allows me I surely manage for something.
    GW and I have a project on some COTU minicomic in the future.

    I would like to second that hope for a sequel, dan - this was a great mini-comic and it would be great to see you explore the miniternia universe some more... time and job willing, of course

    What exceptional work!!

    I loved all the pictures. I love the story. I love that you tried to explain things. I also LOVE that you have Zodac based at Point Dread. I used to think that in the 200X cartoon, Zodak's base was Point Dread (it wasn't, but I thought it was cool to think so). SO, your making it Zodac's base in this mini-comic was VERY cool.

    BRAVO!!

    I feel 5 years old again!!

    I hope you make more comics, and maybe try to explain Blonde Teela and try to tie the later mini-comics together... the ones where The Sorceress isn't green.

    Hey guys, the astonishing He-bro just posted "the triumph of Skeletor" on his site, which, by the way, is the far more creative and original on the net, in high resolution. See here:

    http://he-man.us/history/04.5%20Triu...0Skeletor.html

    I assure you, I'd never thought to achieve such praise, thanks again to you all.

    Bro, this is the most amazing fan-work/fiction that I've ever experienced.

    Thank you so much for all of the effort that you've put into it. This story fits in perfectly with those original 4 Acala comics, which are (to this day) my favorite ever produced. Eternia just seemed more wild and mysterious, and you captured that perfectly.

    Again, THANK YOU!

    I'll just say I've always thought if she did show up in that continuity, she'd still be his sister, twin or otherwise. After the great wars, and the dimensional gates opened, the evil warlord Hordak ravaged the lands and on a raid, he swept through the tribal village where He-Man grew up. Stealing the little girl away, he eventually traded her. As she grew up and escaped to salvation, she banded with the amazonian women who kept Bow as their 'pet'.

    Sorry guys, no She-ra in this canon, I'm a really die-hard of it. If you noticed, I didn't even called "snake mountain" the liar of Skeletor because it isn't never mentioned with that name in these comics.
    I have to say though that Jon-O idea is very intriguing.
    I'm actually working on the plot for the new mini, it will take long, but what will happen is already on paper.

    That's fine. Half the fun of this reality is how different it is from the other. And I'm glad you liked my idea, any way.

    I can't wait to read the next issue.
