About the Book:
This is the continuation of He-Man stories, Zodiak and the Sorceress continue the discussion about the nature of Prince Adam / He-Man and his destiny as the champion of Grayskull.
The cover art itself is amazing, showing Zodiac and Sorceress divided with more variations of the characters of the story. Like the cover before, it grabs the attention of those that are fans of the Masters of the Universe, and all its renditions. Which includes myself!
The interior artwork is just as amazing as the cover, starting off yet again with another version of He-Man, only this time it is more grounded in reality. Yet still showing the mysticism of the genre, followed by a black and white story that is very stark and contrasting, adding to the emotion of the story itself.
This story continues into the dive between Zodiak and Sorceress about the merits of Adam being He-Man and what it means to be a champion for good. Being like the previous book in the series, there are two stories being told, the first is the more grounded rendition of how Adam became He-Man in what feels like a mid century time frame, as Man-At-Arms and his guards appear to be something like conquistadors.
The second chapter in the story is what happens should He-Man disappear and what happens to Man-At-Arms as he does what is needed to survive.
Being the fan that I am, I am enjoying the different tales and views of the various characters. It adds to the wonderful childhood memories I have of watching the various cartoons. Except the He-Man in space one… that one should just be erased from the ether.
Regardless, this series is off to a wonderful start and I look forward to increasing my collection with more wonderful stories being told by those involved in this series. If you are a fan of any of the Masters of the Universe titles, even the He-Man in space one, then this series is something that is a must read. Remember You have the power to enjoy anything you wish to read, why not read something that makes you part of the Masters of the Universe!
