FIRST LOOK: He-Man gets in on the multiverse action over at DC

August 20th, 2019 by Paddy Comments

Hot on the heels of the big announcement that He-Man was coming back in animated form, via Kevin Smith’s Masters of the Universe Revelation, came the news that DC Comics was launching an all-new adventure featuring Eternia’s finest.

He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse is a six-issue mini-series, from DC and Mattel, expected to hit shelves in November.

Writer Tim Seeley, artists Dan Fraga and Richard Friend, along with cover artist Inhyuk Lee join forces to tell this tale of heroes making their last stand to protect their kingdoms against an impossible threat. In their desperation, they’re forced to risk their futures by reaching out to an unlikely and potentially dangerous ally.

Multiple He-Mans from different dimensions are forced to work together to save what is left of their multiverse from the scourge of Anti-Eternia.

“The Masters of the Universe franchise continues with the all-new comic book series, He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse,” said Rob David, VP of Mattel.

“With multiple He-Mans working together from different dimensions to save the multiverse, this series created in partnership with the expert writers and illustrators from DC Comics will be sure to delight new and old fans alike, while adding an entirely new dimension to the Power of Grayskull.” 

The surviving He-Men are forced to turn to an unlikely ally in the battle to save all they know in the form of none other than Prince Keldor otherwise known as the man who would become Skeletor.
“DC has had a long-standing and exciting partnership with Mattel in bringing the adventures of He-Man to comics and our fans,” said Hank Kanalz, SVP, Publishing Strategy and Support Services.

“DC also knows what it means to showcase characters from across its own multiverse; I’m looking forward to seeing the different iterations of He-Man and other Masters of the Universe characters in this series.”

Paddy Ryan, like Buck Rogers, is a man out of time. He's a loose cannon haunted by his past who, when he's not making painful attempts at humour, is busy watching as many geeky films and TV shows as possible. An avid reader, he has vowed one day to start that novel he's been talking about for years. Born in the late 70s, he's an 80s kid at heart who sees nothing wrong with spending hours upon hours watching season three of Robin Of Sherwood. Jason Connery wasn't that bad you know! He's got a million ideas for comic books but thankfully doesn't know anyone with the time to draw them and call his bluff on that one! The Empire Strikes Back is his favourite film, Doctor Who is his TV show of choice and when it comes to books ... well that's a whole other story! I'm Paddy Ryan and you're not...
