Feature Story 1: "The Island Skeletor" (English translation of the German comic "Die Insel der Skelette" from Ehapa)
He-Man, Teela, Man-At-Arms, Orko, Fisto, and Sy-Klone are on a voyage over the Eternian ocean. Suddenly they find themselves on top of a giant waterfall, about to tip over the edge- but He-Man and Man-At-Arms twist round the sail to form a parachute, so they instead glide into the air and land safely in the sea below. Just then, they are attacked by a Koma-Beast, but Orko scares it away with one of his spells. Then they find a strange-looking island, and decide to explore it. (cont'd in next part)

Scrollos promises that he will, though he never kept that promise, even though the comic desperately needed another Faker appearance.
