    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Aug 7, 2021

    Masters of the Universe: Revelation #2 continues to live up to the series' subtitle, revealing new truths about the various characters inMasters of the Universe and acting as an effective prequel to the animated series. The next issue promises to reveal more about Evil-Lyn, who was one of my favorite characters in Part 1 of Revelation. Read Full Review

    This issue has the one-two punch of a great story and great art! This comic is an example of why you leave work early on Wednesdays. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Aug 1, 2021

    Ultimately, while it doesn't really advance the story much, or add any real new context to the Revelations animated series, there are still some fun ideas being explored here. And, while I'm personally not a huge fan of the possibilities offered up here, the execution is admirable and the enthusiasm for the franchise shines through on pretty much every page. The final pages promise to take the story in a new direction, and – with early apologies to the fans who are already seemingly in uproar about the lack of He-Man in the Netflix series – it looks like we're going into an Evil-Lyn focused issue next time out. I absolutely can't wait though, although I hope we do get a little more advancement of the Orlax story in the process. Read Full Review

    If anything, Masters of the Universe: Revelation #2 exists to get from Point A to Point B without providing a meaningful trajectory forward, a rarity this early in a comic arc. Read Full Review

    I hated the first issue and so,how, this one was worse. Tim Sheridan needs to stop writing comics because he is not good at it!

    This issue throws away all of the excellent world-building done by previous MOTU/He-Man creative teams in order to present us with an entire race of Skeletors. This is visually unappealing (understatement) and sets Skeletor up as a borderline-heroic tragic figure, committing unspeakable atrocities for very good and relatable reasons. When it comes to such absurd properties as MOTU, I don't need my villains to be relatable or 'the heroes of their own stories.' I mainly just need an evil-doer for He-Man to punch in his skeletal face. If you want to make him a more competent villain, I'm all for it... but don't try to make him sympathetic! Besides, this is virtually the same origin story as Megatron in IDW's Transformers universe (minus t more
