As I've mentioned in the past, variant covers can be lot of fun. Seeing new takes on familiar characters from different artists.
This time I thought I'd talk about the great He-Man.org exclusive online variant-cover for Issue 7 - Volume 3 of the Masters of the Universe comic by MVCreations.
The cover features King Randor and Queen Marlena in their "battle-outfits". We were first introduced to these armor-variants in season 1 episode "Of Machines and Men".
The cover-art is done by Eamon O'Donoghue with colouring by Jeremy Roberts. As a great homage, Eamon drew Randor with the sword he received from Lord Dactys in season 1 episode "Underworld".
Marlena also is holding the sword from 1987 live-action movie "Masters of the Universe" where He-Man (potrayed by Dolph Lundgren) had this particular sword.
