He-Man has lost control of his Power Sword...just as he’s forced to battle dozens of mutants and minions of evil from two worlds-Evil-Lyn, Slithe, Beastman, Jackalman and more! With only his bare hands for weapons, and with the Power of Grayskull never more vulnerable, will any man help He-Man stand against the forces of evil? Fortunately for Eternia, a new breed of heroes has arrived!

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Dec 5, 2016

    He-Man/ThunderCats #2 is a perfect comic. The pacing is excellent; David, Goldfine, and Williams do a fantastic job of capturing the characters of He-Man and Skeletor as well as the mysterious narrator. The action scenes are some of the best comics have to offer. You get to see He-Man in all of his glory as he battles insurmountable odds and the story keeps you on the edge of your seat. Go buy this book. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Todd Young Nov 16, 2016

    I really enjoyed this second issue. I didn't dislike the first, but the He-Man battle was badass and whet my appetite for what else the series has up its sleeves in coming issues. I would recommend this one to anybody who remembers and was a fan of either show growing up, especially He-Man. The creators have got their fingers on the pulse of how to turn an old property into something fresh and exciting. If they keep it up for the rest of the series, it's going to be a great ride.

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Nov 16, 2016

    Overall the crossover continues to provide a very intriguing story, with a few different working storylines still all in play, and no confusion in sight. Lloyd Goldfine and Rob David are doing a great job giving each character their voice in a crowded landscape. Meanwhile Freddie E Williams continues to kill art duties and even though the backgrounds in some panels are pretty plain the detail and colors used everywhere else more than make up for the minor hiccup. I would recommend this series to anybody munching on ‘member berries' for these properties or even just looking for an entertaining comic to enjoy.  Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Dec 25, 2016

    Freddie Williams II is always an acquired taste. But here, his work shines and fits better than anything else. His exaggerated musculature is not a problem in this comic. The kind of grotesque physique he gives characters is what I expect from these cartoon characters. If you have been sitting on the fence about this comic like I have, just give in. You will not be disappointed. Read Full Review

    He-Man and Thundercats moves beyond cheesy cartoon action and creates an interesting mythology that has room to grow and develop. The creative team of David, Goldfine, and Williams has created a book true to these characters and deeper than most readers know. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 16, 2016

    It's He-Man along against the villains of two worlds. An interesting turn of events looks to provide an alternative take on that format with the arrival of the ThunderCats. This is an easy recommendation for fans of both series and even those who just enjoy some big time super-powered heroics in the fantasy realm. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 17, 2016

    The second issue of this crossover is more enjoyable than the first, partly because it makes more of an effort to actually blend the two franchises. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Nov 16, 2016

    Story wise, this issue starts off in a fairly by-the-numbers fashion, picks up in the middle with some fantastic action, and ends by throwing an interesting curveball into the established He-Man mythos. Ultimately however, while the levels of fan service are off the charts, this feels at times more like an enjoyable slice of fan-fic than the polished, boundary-pushing comic that Eternity War was. Freddie E Williams II ensures that things look absolutely gorgeous throughout, but as a lifelong fan of these two franchises, I cant help but find myself craving something a little more… substantial. Fingers crossed that things pick up once the inhabitants of Thundera arrive, which by the looks of it may be sooner rather than later. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Sean Blumenshine Nov 16, 2016

    Overall, this is an okay issue. While the action is fun, it is just action. It's incredibly well-done action but that's not the most interesting thing in the world to me. Skeletor is fun because he's over the top and silly as always. And the art is pretty good. It just isn't the most interesting thing in the world. Read Full Review
