Feature Story 1: "The Shadow Jester" (English translation of the German comic "Im Bann des Schattennarren" from Ehapa)
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."
Feature 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 part 3)
Feature 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
