Aidan has lost this one, but can still remember some
of the stories in it (but not their titles).
Story 1: (Name Unknown)
Orko, Teela, and Adam are at Grayskull preparing a Christmas
meal, when the castle is attacked by mud-monsters sent
by Skeletor. One scene in this features Adam about to
change to He-Man in front of Teela, feeling there is
no choice- but Orko stops him, and this story features
no He-Man, just Adam. (I think this was a two-parter,
so it crossed over to feature story 2)
Story 3: (Name Unknown)
He-Man and Man-At-Arms are at Grayskull, when an alien
space ship lands. A huge army of aliens step out, and
He-Man and Man-At-Arms prepare to defend the castle.
But then, the aliens do something very unusual... they
all put masks and strange costumes on, and start to
fight amongst each other, but not actually hurting anyone!
The Sorceress leaves for another dimension to find out
what is happening, then He-Man and Man-At-Arms move
towards the battle, puzzled as to the aliens' behavior
but assuming they are testing their weapons for an assault
on Grayskull. The aliens continue to fight, and He-Man
and Man-At-Arms prepare to defend the castle..... but
then, the aliens remove their masks, and go back into
their space ship, and take off! Man-At-Arms and He-Man
are left totally perplexed- but then the Sorceress returns,
and explains it all- the aliens were not assaulting
Grayskull at all. They were in fact actors from another
world, who were filming part of their movie on Eternia
before taking off for their next filming location!
is simply a unique and classic issue! The only disappointing
thing is that although She-Ra is on the front cover,
she doesn't actually feature in the magazine, like the
cover might suggest. But the stories are truly unique,
and an advertisement for the live action movie is also
within the comic. The last story, probably inspired
by the fact that the movie was just coming out, has
to be one of the weirdest, but still enjoyable, stories
the comic ever printed! These London Editions scriptwriters
sure had a hell of a lot of interesting ideas!)
