    Ive already written about how Freddie Williams who is an acquired taste usually is the best artist for this comic. Besides the fact that he can render these muscle-bound atrocities well, he also make them look dynamic. In the case of the Thundercats, lets not forget that they always seem to dance when they fought. They dance in the comic too! Heres a suggestion. If youre a fan of Conan comics, pick this up.

    Overall the He-Man/Thunder Cats crossover continues to impress me all the wayfrom the cover to last cliffhanger page each and every issue so far.  It may be one of those rare crossovers thatyou don't necessarily have to be a fan of the properties,  He-Man and Thundercats, to enjoy because its just a damn good comic book at this point.    Read Full Review

    He-Man/ThunderCats remains a wholly satisfying, fan-pleasing experience. This is becoming a book I'm eagerly anticipating each new issue. So far it hasn't let me down. This crossover just might have the power. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Todd Young Dec 21, 2016

    Once again I enjoyed the book more than I thought I would have. I didn't find the ThunderCats as compelling as when He-Man/Prince Adam was the focus, but there was a limited amount of screen time to divvy up between the team. There's plenty of action and no denying that the book looks tremendous, especially it's standout use of color. It'll be interesting to see how the book moves forward after the end of this one, but overall the series is engaging me and making me want to come back and see what's next. Read Full Review

    Readers who were engaged during the first two issues, have enough here to keep them coming back. Readers who found the first two issue too self serious and not at the core of these characters now have hope. Regardless of the audience, this creative team treats both franchises with respect and continues to cultivate a compelling narrative. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Dec 21, 2016

    Ultimately then, while Im thrilled that this comic actually exists in the first place, I still cant shake the feeling that the fans of both franchises deserve more.  Sure, its great to have such gorgeously illustrated pages featuring the inhabitants of Third Earth and Eternia going blow-for-blow, but with a little more storytelling creativity and dialogue polish this series could be something truly special rather than merely the entertaining diversion that it is.

    This is the best issue so far. The art style works a lot more in this issue that it did in the previous issues and I enjoyed looking at it quite a bit. The fight is fun and filled with strong lines but there's not a lot to this outside of action until the very end. Read Full Review
