About the Book:
This is a book of multiple He-Man stories, Zodiak has come to visit the Sorceress and has a discussion about the nature of Prince Adam and his new abilities as He-Man and whether or not he is deserving of the powers of Grayskull.
The cover art itself is amazing, showing Zodiac at the center and highlighting the two essential Masters of the Universe shows that are currently in syndication. With Zodiac at the center it shows a promise of what the story is about.
The interior artwork is just as amazing as the cover, starting off with the He-Man from Masters of the Universe Revelations and then folds right into the He-Men from other universes which coincidentally have their own particular art style, story and situations.
The story itself matches more along the lines of a previous He-Man series that I have reviewed, dealing with multiple people who have taken up the mantle known as He-Man. This one takes a new take on it, which I enjoy as while the first series of comics that dealt with multiple He-Man personae’s, this one seems to cover the ones that were left out of that run of comics.
As Zodiac and the Sorceress look across the universes at the various renditions of He-Man, I look forward to reading this series and seeing the fresh take on both new and old characters and stories.
He-Man and the Masters of the Universe was my childhood staple growing up. There were some great shows like the original 80’s cartoon, and some not so great shows like the version where he goes into the future and essentially becomes He-Man in space.
This series has great potential if you are a fan of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. If it is not something you are into, then it may not be for you. But for me this is a great find, and the series is off to a great start!
