Cohn is clearly not trying very hard. This is the second issue in a row we get a new good guy helping Skeletor before coming around and fighting against him (then again, these characters are inherently kind of silly). Skeletor has the Power Sword somehow. And we get a scene where Man-E-Faces explodes…into a robot.
What redeems this comic is that it gives us a glimpse of the next stage of the mythos’s evolution. We have the Royal Palace of Eternia here, and a town with an economy, and there’s no indication of the previous post-apocalyptic backstory (not that that’s necessarily better at this point, but it’s interesting). We also have the short-lived long-haired, blond Teela.
There’s really not a lot you can do with Man-E-Faces; this is good enough.
