    NA Italian Magic Boy comic story translation - 'The Oneiric Crystal'

    Presenting: The English-Language translation of the "He-Man" (aka "New Adventures of He-Man") story "The Oneiric Crystal" (1990) from the Italian 'Magic Boy' comics!

    I really like how this story spotlights Karatti and especially Nocturna, who didn't get a ton of exposure in US media. While we did receive an awesome Karatti figure in Masters of the Universe Classics, we never did get a Nocturna. I definitely hope he gets a well-deserved MOTUC release someday, if Classics comes out of hiatus!

    I really enjoyed Francesco Pedicini's very trippy artwork in these later NA stories for the magazine.

    To quote Madame Razz... oh deary my! What's up with the thirsty schoolchildren, LOL?! That one girl obviously has hots for teacher and then, the other one at the end?
    "Hey, move it! I want to touch his muscles!" ???
    Bonus points to this writer for throwing "Damn you!" and the word "die!" around loosely in a "kid's" comic... ha ha!
    Please keep these translations coming, they are a riot!

    Ooh, very nice! Thank you for putting this out. There aren't that many NA comics, so it's nice to have another one in English

    Interesting. It appears that page 4 shows us that Primus's gravitational velocity does not work with the normal laws of physics.
