    I'm tired of saying that Freddie E. Williams II was born to draw this comic. Its chaotic and filled with energy and overtly muscle guys who seem on roids. It doesnt matter. This is what this comic and the cartoons were about. Get this comic! Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Feb 15, 2017

    He-Man/ThunderCats #5 is another excellent entry in what is definitely the best mini-series of this year so far. We aren't even finished this one and we're already hoping they have a second one planned. The story is pure comics' goodness, showcasing an epic battle throughout. Writers Rob David and Lloyd Goldfine are able to touch on each character in the supporting cast, letting us in on their personalities while also showcasing their combat prowess and battlefield skills. The artwork is simply amazing with action from end to end. However, even with non-stop action, Freddie Williams is still able to create deep emotional moments that highlight the danger and importance of the battle. You should definitely go pick up this book. It's a must have. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Feb 15, 2017

    Easily the best issue of the series so far then, and Messrs David, Goldfine and Williams are building up some serious momentum here as we head into the concluding chapter. After a bit of a shaky start, the series is finally delivering on its massive potential, and while the artwork has been uniformly fantastic from the very first page of the very first issue, the writing is finally starting to catch up, providing us with the kind of air-punching awesomeness that a series like this demands.

    This is the Penultimate edition of this comic, and unfortunately our two main characters are nowhere in sight. He-Man Thundercats without either Lion-O or He-Man? What a let down. I mean this is their book, at least one of them should have shown up, well both seeing as they were together in the last issue. Read Full Review

    He-Man/Thunder Cats continue to bring what the fans want tothe table despite a few minor hiccups. If you're a fan of these properties andyou've come this far along in the series issue five is truly a book to lookover twice. Make sure you don't miss anything fun, important, or even severalthrowbacks to your childhood straight from creators who care.  Read Full Review

    The issue is action packed but ultimately does little to move the story forward. Issue #6 should be an exciting conclusion to this fandom crossover Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Todd Young Feb 16, 2017

    It's a battle, from beginning to end. We get to see some other characters take the lead, besides He-Man and Lion-O, but it didn't feel as epic as some of the other moments in earlier issues. Those moments, like seeing He-Man unleash his power in a way the television show never allowed, brought a fresh and intriguing angle to the familiar characters which made them worth revisiting. There weren't any stand out scenes in this one that couldn't have been in an actual episode of the animated series, as character interactions played out much like you would expect if you had watched the shows. Here's hoping next issue Lion-O and He-Man return and bring something unexpected with them. Read Full Review
