Hey, everybody! It’s your favorite live-action Masters of the Universe movie character, Saurod!

You know, Saurod? Played by Pons Maar? Shot sparks out of his mouth as a toy…?

Yeah, me neither.

Art by William Stout. Scan from the Lost Worlds by William Stout trading card set. This is the last bit of Masters of the Universe art in the series, unless there’s a piece or two hidden on the backs of unrelated cards (like how He-Man had a Flesh Gordon poster on his). I’ll have to check them at some point… also, there are apparently more card sets devoted to Stout’s artwork, but I don’t own them.

William Stout concept art for He-Man from the live-action Masters of the Universe movie. How bizarre is it that Moebius worked on that film? Also, uh, I have no idea why the reverse of the card is a Flesh Gordon poster.

Evidently original Johnny Gruelle artwork of Raggedy Ann and Andy, used as reference for 1977 film Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure. Scanned from The Animated Raggedy Ann and Andy, which is also where this and this came from.

Few comic strip artists could use the beautiful interplay of black inks and white space like Chester Gould could - and even fewer used their mastery of that delicate skill to illustrate someone’s imminent death by a shiver of ravenous sharks. Gould probably had that market covered pretty well, I’d bet.

Sketches of the French doll, Babette, from the 1977 film Raggedy Ann & Andy: A Musical Adventure; I thought the one in close-up looked inadvertently creepy because of the play of shadows on her face. Scanned from The Animated Raggedy Ann and Andy, which is also where these came from.

Len Wein and Walter Simonson make an incredibly successful go of combining DC’s Caped Crusader with the trashy prose of Snoopy from Peanuts. Also: my GOD Walt Simonson inks are so beautiful I could CRY.

"Once Upon a Time," originally from 1981’s Batman #500, scanned from a reprint in Tales of the Dark Knight: Batman’s First Fifty Years: 1939-1989.
