    Establishing Adora as a legitimate threat is a nice way to start this series off. With Skeletor out of the picture and Hordak on the horizon, it's a great way to give MoTU fans something they've never really seen before, even if we know how it all plays out in the end. He-Man and the Master of the Universe remedies what felt wrong with the other series and expands on the mythos and lore fans know and love. Read Full Review

    I can't see this book appealing much to the He-Man neophytes out there, but fans of the franchise should have plenty of reason to enjoy this take on the Masters of the Universe. Read Full Review

    So… is it worth picking up? I think so. Issue 1 had great work by Mhan, but it seems to be lacking here. The story, though, is going strong and if you read the miniseries you'll see the revelation of who Skeletor actually is to He-Man, which is touched upon here. It's definitely worth the read for fans of the franchise, but I would say you do need to be familiar with the franchise to like this issue as a standalone one, but reading the miniseries and how it's been relaunched is almost a must. We'll see what happens at the conclusion of this first arc, but I'm hopeful that the series will continue! Read Full Review

    (" I just pray fervently that this series does not get impacted by the idiotically planned cross-over between the Masters and the DCU characters that has been announced! The costumes look different enough that I'm hoping it's an alternate version!) Read Full Review
