    This “silly” crossover, between two 80's TV/toy properties,continues to be an enjoyable story and is entering into the territory of beingbetter than it has any business to be. Even if your aren't a fan of the He-Manor Thunder Cat lines there is no denying the art is incredibly pleasing to lookat making this comic well worth its cover price. Read Full Review

    Freddie Williams continues to be super cool drawing the one comic book he was meant to draw. He keeps amazing me by how much I cannot imagine anyone capturing the action from these cartoon properties and the overtly muscle frames of the characters so well. Read Full Review

    With solid pacing in the storytelling and beautiful artwork, this creative team has the power to carry these characters beyond this initial six issue limited series. The limited series is a fan's dream, but without previous attachments to these characters the appeal of the series may be limited. Read Full Review

    If youre looking for complex character work or nuanced storytelling youll probably end up disappointed, but if you want a comic that makes you feel like a kid sitting wide-eyed in front of your TV again, this is definitely the series for you. Read Full Review

    It's hard not to appreciate a crossover that actually takes the time to mash up the mythologies of both franchises. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Todd Young Jan 18, 2017

    It's not my favorite of the mini-series so far; I'd roughly put it on par with the first book. Most of that is because of the high standard the last two issues set in terms of breaking from the confines of the kid-friendly TV show and defying expectations, rather than anything being wrong with this one. If the big confrontation in this issue had landed for me, I would have enjoyed the book more as a whole. Still, the writers and artists are delivering a strong series and set up next issue to really let the sparks fly. I'll be looking forward to seeing how that book turns out. Read Full Review

    Overall, the issue doesn't work for me. The art is fine for the most part with some cool colors. I enjoyed some little moments such as Cringer becoming a Thundercat and Skeletor being Skeletor. But, the main bulk of the issue is boring to me with the big fight and the tone of this series is not working for me. I don't recommend reading this issue. Read Full Review
