December 21, 2016
The last time I did the comic book challenge on this blog, one of my favorite comics that I was reading was based off of two of my childhood favorite cartoons with one being He-Man and the other being Thundercats. Unfortunately by the time I started reading the comic, all of the comic book shops around me were out of the rest of the issues so I had no idea if I was going to continue reading any of them. Well, I found a place where I can read the rest of the issues and that is what I am doing as I present to you He-Man/Thundercats #3 which was once again written by Lloyd Goldfine (He-Man and the Masters Of The Universe) and Rob David (He-Man: The Eternity War) and it was illustrated by Freddie Williams II (Batman/TMNT). Int he previous issues, we saw that Mumm-Ra had stolen the sword from He-Man, but by the time he showed up to the Black Pyramid, he had an unexpected visitor in Skeletor who reduced him to ashes and drank him. Now, Skeletor has the power of the sword and the powers of Mumm-Ra and he looks to take over Castle Greyskull once and for all, but first he’ll have to deal with the Thundercats.

One of the things that I have been most impressed about when reading this comic is the artwork because Freddie Williams II does an amazing job. I loved his work with the Batman/TMNT crossover and I definitely love his work with this one. He does such an amazing job capturing the essence of the two series and he manages to make it work so that it looks like they could cross dimensions. It looks as if you are watching the series right on the comic book page, but with a little more graphic violence for us original fans of the series. He does a great job with the action scenes because there is plenty of it in this issue and they are drawn amazingly. The other thing that is done well in this comic is the writing of course because that is an essential part. The two are pros as far as He-Man is concerned, but they did a great job with the Thundercats too. I love the personal battle that ensues between Skeletor and Mumm-Ra because their egos are that large in a sense. I can not wait to check out the rest of the series and being able to review it for you guys. Check it out for yourselves and check out my grades below:
