    Sad to see this thread got stuck and forgotten long time ago.

    I downloaded all the images when this was published some years ago, but unfortunately my old PC died and I lost them.

    Please, would anyone be so kind as to repost image 19 of the series, at FULL resolution? All the links still work except for that one:

    I would greatly appreciate it!

    Thank you, best regards.

    Any info about this He-Man comic?

    Hi!
    I'm looking for any info about this MOTU unfinished comic:
    rVSlD18.jpgGCPG0so.jpg1hxOgt3.jpg

    This was an unfinished comic, there is just 32 pages (13 inked). But I want to know the artist and why was not finished. It is a rare He-Man origin too.

    Thanks!

    My guess is it was done slightly after Alfredo Alcala started his work on the first four mini comics. I say that because Skeletor in this comic is the cardback version, which is a slightly later incarnation than the five-toed version used in 3 of 4 of the first minicomics. The five toed version comes from the original Mark Taylor B-Sheet.

    My guess is that it was also done before the mid-1982 DC comics crossover series, because there is no hint of their Prince Adam origin story.

    Having said that, the original auction claims this was from 1984. That's possible, but the art suggests an earlier origin, IMO

    Actually, in this comic, he has four toes unlike the card back version which has three. It's most clearly visible when he's riding the dragon. So it's not quite 100% that version.
    One possibility that might be worth considering is that Alcala may have been given an earlier design to serve as a reference by mistake.

    Good eye - he does have four toes. But otherwise pretty close to the cross sell art.

    I suspect at the start Alcala was given the most recent designs, mostly from Mark's B-sheets. The designs from HMPS, KOCG and VOS all seem to draw from those sources. But, it would be great if we had solid dates instead of inferences. I also tend to think Battle in the Clouds was drawn last of the first four, even though it's often listed as the third.

    I would guess Alcala finished his artwork late in 81 and the comics were printed late 81 or very early in 82, in time for a March 1 debut of the line in stores. Just a guess! I wonder when the cross sell artwork was done and started to be used as a basis for other media? Maybe also late in 1981, when Alcala had already started working on several comics, but in time for him to start incorporating into BITC?

    Again, just guesses.

    Well, damn. I came across the images of these pages I had saved to my laptop all those years ago and decided to dig up this thread, thinking that surely, eight years later, the information we'd been teased about had finally come to light during that span of time. Pretty disappointing to see that nothing ever came of it.

    I'm surprised No one still has any real news on this. Surely someone at Mattel must know something.

    Looks like most of the original links are broken. Is there a link for reading the whole comic?
