The artwork has never been a particular strong suit with this series. However, issue #6 is at least the most visually consistent, as Pop Mhan pencils and inks every page. The character designs offer all the power and bombast you'd expect from a He-Man comic. The He-Man/Skeletor battle is framed much better than a lot of the other tent pole fight scenes have been. One area that the book continues to suffer from, however, is that the world itself doesn't feel like Eternia. It has a very generic, medieval Europe quality to it, and shows none of that signature blend of technology and barbarism that defines the franchise. This is a world where heroes pilot fancy hovercraft vehicles and use advanced computers, yet still wear fur underwear over their armor. I'm hoping the new series will better capture that aesthetic.

While it's always a good thing to check out new books, this is one that isn't really worth your time. Neither Fialkov nor Oliver's skills really shine through here, leading to a comic without any clear sense of direction that simply falls flat in its execution. Sorry He-Men Nation. Read Full Review
