Summer 1987

The table of contents shows the heavy influence the film has on this issue, with an illustration of Saurod and pictures of Lundgren and Langella in their respective roles...

Next is a BEAUTIFUL illustration by the great Earl Norem of He-Man and Gwildor brandishing their weapons. Note that Gwildor's key here is colored almost exactly like the unreleased Cosmic Key toy!

Last, but certainly not least, is the fold-out poster from the issue: Another amazing Earl Norem painting, this time featuring He-Man battling Blade while many of the other movie characters look on! (I did my best to put this together after scanning it in 4 chunks... hope it looks okay!)
