#0032 - This ain't Filmation!

A memorable phase during the Masters of the Universe minicomics had the artists look to the Filmation designs for inspiration. Subsequently we were treated to a lot of Filmation-like comic book artwork. The one thing that was odd about these minicomics is that they were extremely violent in places. "The Secret Liquid of Life", "Double-Edged Sword" and "Slave City" are three examples of minicomics that looked great, but had a very adult feel to them. In these two panels we can see He-Man and Battle Cat, clearly based on their Filmation models, killing the man-eating plants. Not something the moralistic Filmation He-Man would have done...
