About the Book:

Hordak and the Horde are invading Anwat Gar on Eternia, only to discover their use of science matches that of the horde. While the war rages, Hordak visits Fortune’s Sisters, to discuss his fate and his future. Only to discover that his fate and future are intertwined with another, someone from Eternia who is from Anwat Gar.

Reviewer’s Notes:

Over the years the shows have always touched on the origin of Skeletor, and his connection to all those he has interacted with.  But one of the pieces of information that has only recently come to light that I have found is the fact that he comes from a country called Anwat Gar, and while I may be late to the party to that information, it is definitely a wonderful piece of information to the Skeletor lore.

While the comic series Revelation as well as the Netflix show, gives a pretty close to full account of Keldor / Skeletor and his ties to the royal family and Adam / He-Man himself, television shows always have a limit in time and budget.  Masters of the Universe Revolution, while named after the sequel series on Netflix, does a much better job of going into the details of how Keldor becomes Skeletor.

It was wonderful to see Hordak’s original role in the details of Skeletor and how he meets Shadow Weaver as well, as she is an integral part of Hordak and his crew. This story also shows how the Havoc staff comes into play.  But I also like how this story discusses the magical powers as a whole.

Skeletor and his origins have always been shrouded in a magical secret of mystery.  This story does a wonderful job of illuminating those fabulous secrets!

The cover is a solid piece of work! Showing Hordak in all his glory with Skeletor’s imposing facial features, in the background. This is definitely something that I could see being on a poster print on the wall of a fan.

The interior artwork is very well done.  It mimics the style of the Netflix series and makes the reader feel like they are reading an extension of the show itself. The lines are clean and the words are easy to understand. Bringing all the details of  the Horde to life on the page, while doing a great job of separating Hordak talking versus the person who is talking to Keldor.

Growing up in the 80s and 90s I grew up as an eclectic geek, a fact that still holds true today. I grew up watching all the classic cartoons of the 80's and had many an adventures with the toys that went with. Played tabletop RPG's and still enjoy computer gaming as adulting allows. On top of making time to read comics, and spend time with family and friends.
