Earlier in the week, I told you how excited I was for the He-Man/Thundercats series after just reading one issue of it. Well, I have read issue number two and as a fan of both cartoons I am super excited to share it with you. In the last issue, we saw Mumm-Ra steel the sword from He-Man as he escaped Eternia with it to please the evil spirits of the black pyramid, but what he didn’t expect to see was Skeletor sitting in the pyramid waiting for him. In this issue, we see that Skeletor has reduced Mumm-Ra to ashes, but he plans on using him for something. Meanwhile, He-Man now has to deal with the fact that he no longer has his sword and some unexpected guests show up to try and test his will without the sword. What happens next, you will have to pick up the issue your self and find out. There are several ways to do so with one being that you drive yourself to your local comic book shop and pick up a copy of it. The other step is to click this link to go to DC’s website where you can also read it there.
The coolest thing about this comic book is that I feel that it plays out like a TV series where typically they’ll spend time with the villain then cut to the hero after a cliffhanger and so on and so forth. I love how they structured it that way because it feels like a TV series for sure. The story is getting better and better as you turn the pages of it. It definitely leaves you wanting more and it’s such an amazing take. I love the fact that the villains of both shows team up together and there is a special surprise at the end of the issue that you have to check out for yourself. The artwork in the book is amazing and I have to say that I love the artwork on the cover which is done by Freddie E. Williams II. I love the style of it because he took it from the TV version and he turned them into comic book characters if you catch my drift. The panels again are easy to follow and this is one to check out if you are a fan. Check out my grades below:
