Description

 

Feature Story 1: "Contest of Champions" (English translation of the German comic "Turnier der Tapferen" from Ehapa)
This story features another Contest of Champions, like the one seen in issue #58. The heroic and evil warriors enter against one another. This time He-Man is present. Unlike the last time, the heroic warriors start winning from the very start and the evil warriors pose no threat. (cont'd in next part)

Master Mail
This issue's Master Mail contains a question from Aidan (yes, honestly! Twice in a row!) asking why Grizzlor is so completely dumb... the answer is "I guess every planet has a Grizzlor, Aidan. I'm sure you know someone like him on Earth."

Feature Story 2: "Contest of Champions", Cont'd
The heroic warriors continue to win, so when it comes to the final match, between He-Man on Skeletor on their feline steeds, the evil warriors use magic tricks to divert He-Man. But He-Man still beats Skeletor to the finish line and is hailed the champion of Eternia.

Feature Story 3: "Battle of the Titans"
In a story with radically different artwork from usual, He-Man is accompanying an archaeologist to the site of an ancient city. The archaeologist finds a stone that is cursed by the power of a sun demon. The sun demon attacks them, but He-Man destroys it by cutting off the rays of the sun.

Power Pin-Up
This issue's power pin-up is of a scene from the live-action movie, showing He-Man held captive by Skeletor's troopers.

RATING: 2/5 Overall, this is a pretty lame issue. The "Contest of Champions" story is pretty pointless, since it was done in issue #58 in a much better style. There isn't even any threat for most of the story- the heroic warriors are winning right from the beginning. And it makes for bad continuity since issue #58 stated that the contests happened every ten years..... yet this is in no way ten years after the last one! It seems to me that the writers were stuck for ideas, couldn't think of any and so they just did a cheap remake of an old story. The "Battle of the Titans" story isn't that good either. No, the best thing in this issue is my letter on the letters page... well, ok, I'm biased..... :)
