Story 1: "The Shadow Jester"
Eternia is suffering from a terrible heatwave, destroying
crops and water. Hordak is behind the heatwave, and
strikes by disguising himself as a jester from an Eternian
legend. He goes to Eternos and tells the citizens that
he is there to save them, and all he needs in payment
is their shadows. They give away their shadows to him,
but the heroic warriors suspect something is up. The
people all follow the jester, who claims he will take
them to a place of peace- but Adam is suspicious, and
changes to He-Man! (cont'd in part 2)
This issue contains a very interesting question from
Judy Laverty of Sheffield, towards Scrollos himself.
The question is "Do you have legs?" to which
the complex answer is "Yes."
Story 2: "The Shadow Jester", Cont'd
Hordak, in the disguise of the jester, leads the people
of Eternos away from the city- secretly leading them
to the Fright Zone! He-Man sets out after the jester,
with Orko. When he sees the jester leading the people
to the Fright Zone, his fears are confirmed. But He
and Orko decide on a way to solve the problem... the
shadows are guarded in three caves, by the elements
of Earth, Wind and Fire. He-Man and Orko go in one cave,
and begin to battle against the elements. (cont'd in
Story 3: "The Shadow Jester", Cont'd
Man-At-Arms and Teela set out on Jet Sleds to help He-Man.
But as they approach the Fright Zone, they are attacked
by Leech and Modulok! They are almost crushed by a rock
fall, but they make it inside a cave just in time. Meanwhile,
He-Man and Orko have found the well of shadows, where
Hordak is. Orko disguises himself as He-Man's shadow,
so Hordak will think He-Man has got his shadow back.
Hordak plays his flute to draw the disguised Orko away,
and Orko, in the guise of the shadow, follows Hordak
to the shadow prison. Orko saves the day and the drought
is over, and the people return to Eternos
