This strip features Orko being frightened by a book
of spooky stories, and trying to make the room lighter.
The spell goes wrong, of course.
Story 1: "City of Glass"
Hordak uses a crystal to transform the whole of Eternos
city- buildings, people, everything- into glass! When
He-Man and Sy-Klone return to the city, they find Hordak
telling them that he will only restore the city to normal
if they leave Eternia, and if they don't, he will shatter
the city with a noise machine. He-Man gives in, and
agrees to leave Eternia. He and Sy-Klone journey to
the world of Rebba, their new home, but He-Man has a
trick up his sleeve- they promised to leave Eternia,
but said nothing about not returning! So they go back,
and attack Hordak and his warriors. Sy-Klone spins through
the air and forms a vacuum, to prevent the sound of
the fight from travelling, and as he traps the Horde
in his vacuum, He-Man launches the crystal towards the
city, turning it back to normal. The other heroic warriors
emerge, and Hordak flees.
This issue's letters page features a question about
Shadow Weaver and Scorpia- and another promise for the
upcoming She-Ra magazine!
Story 2: "The Forgotten Army, part 3"
Skeletor has used a spell to make the Elders disappear,
and ancient Eternia has become helpless. But Roboto
remains in Polk's strange universe, and uses a time-scope
machine to trace the Elders of Eternia. They discover
that on Polk's universe, they are in a time period after
Grayskull has been built, so they can use Grayskull
to defeat Polk. They project a beam of energy towards
Polk's army, causing the army, and Polk himself, to
disappear. Keclar, the leader of the Elders, then uses
the power of Grayskull to bring He-Man, Skeletor and
both their armies back, and teleport back to Eternia.
Skeletor instantly retreats to Snake Mountain, and He-Man
is ready to go back to the fight with Hordak wher ehe
left off- but the Elders have already seen to it, and
the drilling machine's power is drained.
Story 3: "When Strikes... The Faker!"
On a small island, Adam and Man-At-Arms find someone
who looks exactly like He-Man smashing buildings and
attacking villagers! So Adam transforms into He-Man
and confronts the impostor, who turns out to be Faker,
an evil version of He-Man created by one of Skeletor's
spells. Faker is strong, but not as strong as He-Man,
who flings him into a river, and his skin turns blue.
They have a tremendous fight, tearing up a whole landscape,
until Faker realises he cannot win, and escapes, promising
to return and take revenge.
(Faker is given a disappointing introduction in the
last story, but the story is still good and he is well
portrayed. The artists make a terrible mistake in the
last story when He-Man reveals he is going to change
back to Adam- in front of Fisto!)
