Orko the Magician
The old comedy strip from the original MOTU comic series makes a return in the Adventure magazine- and this one features Orko trying to straighten up a picture that's hanging loose... but he gets it wrong, of course.
Feature story 1: "The Trap of Ages"
Reprinted from an issue of the regular magazine but I'm not sure which one as it's one I've lost... Hordak invents a machine that can make people younger. He intends to use it on He-Man and make him a child, so he can bring him up to learn his evil ways. He lures He-Man to the Fright Zone, captures Man-At-Arms, and places He-Man in the machine. He-Man starts to grow younger- but the machine returns him to the day when he first became He-Man- so he changes back to Prince Adam! Since he is much thinner as Adam, he is able to slip through the bars, and rescues Man-At-Arms. He then goes back in the machine, and Man-At-Arms uses it to return him to his real age and become He-Man again. He-Man then confronts the Horde, who are too scared to fight him, and then he and Man-At-Arms return to the palace.
Feature story 2: "The Dam of Doom" (English translation of the German comic "Katastrophe auf Eternia" from Ehapa)
He-Man, Teela and Orko are alerted by Buzz-Off that Skeletor and his army are marching towards Grayskull. Adam goes and changes to He-Man, then joins the other warriors, who decide to stop Skeletor in the valley of bones. As He-Man arrives, he finds Skeletor but is then called by Zoar to the Great Dam. He goes there as the other warriors deal with Skeletor, and he finds that Skeletor is working with Hordak and King Hiss to flood the countryside. They have damaged the dam, but He-Man and the Masters of the Universe repair it.
Laugh With Leech!
A selection of jokes about the Horde members.
Feature story 3: "When Strikes Konzilla"
Reprinted from the original magazine series.
The back cover of this issue features a very strange pinup... showing Teela holding the sword of power (why is SHE holding it?) with flames emitting from the center- and Orko seems to be trying to get it off her. It also shows Battle Cat, but for some reason without his armor, seemingly growling... there's also He-Man's face, and what looks like a lizard tail coming from nowhere... and King Randor, sitting in the Sorceress' throne! What on Earth was the artist who drew this poster thinking of?
