About the Book:
Continuing where the last story left off, King Randor is on his way to Anwat Gar, for talks to once again unify Eternia. But the actions of the Prince of Anwat Gar left him hospitalized thanks to the manipulations of Evil-Lyn. As they approach a harbor town, the royal party is attacked by those of Anwat Gar themselves. Thanks to Evil-Lyn, they are after Prince Adam.
Whenever we saw the cartoon, or even some comics, most of them centered around King Randor’s castle or castle Grayskull itself. It’s nice to see a new environment when it comes to the mythos of He-Man. While other parts have always been assumed or even implied, they have never really been seen, and that includes other country’s or ethnicities as part of the storyline.
That said, I think that the current story is going in a great direction and has a lot of potential to introduce old and new fans into the backstory of all the characters involved.
The Cover is well done as it shows Adam and Teela in a fight for their lives with an unknown assailant, and while the enemies on the front of the cover are not reflected in the story, it does hint at the conflict to come in terms of the story.
The interior artwork continues to be on par with the previous book. Using the Netflix series as a base, all the characters are shown in full action, and with the emotions that follow those actions. Making the immersion all the better.
