    Nation Of Nerds - Cas Mar 15, 2017

    This book opens up to an amazing image of HE-MAN riding Battle Cat and Lion-o. Really enjoy the art on this first page, super grungy and tough looking. As we look on we see that most of the good guys are fatally wounded and fading fast as our heroes go deep into Castle Gray Skull. Which leads them to a morphed creation of evil in the form of Mumm-ator! and the orb of power. Read Full Review

    He-Man and Thunder Cats provides a satisfying conclusion toa pretty epic mini-series, while also continuing to acknowledge these character‘share' the Multiverse with fellow DC characters, a nice little callback, ifyou ask me, for following He-Man stories DC has published.  Come for the characters you loved as a childstay for the great story and fantastic art.

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Mar 16, 2017

    He-Man/ThunderCats #6 is an epic ending to one of the best miniseries on the shelves. This issue has it all from action-packed combat scenes to powerful emotional moments. Williams' artwork is phenomenal. If there was one thing to knock, it was the shift in the tone of the dialogue. It can really drop you out of the story. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Mar 18, 2017

    In short, this book delivers even for a non-fan, and is just plain fun to read, even giving me goosebumps a time or two during the climactic battle. (All the Master Of The Universe and Thundercats swarming into the battle under the leadership of Man-At-Arms is a really amazing moment, and the art makes it even more so.) He-Man/Thundercats #6 is a winner, across the board, and now I'm thinking I may need to track down the inevitable collection to enjoy the whole story. Read Full Review

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

    At the end of the day, this is an interesting story featuring two larger-than-life franchises being brought together in about as fun a way as you could hope for. Unfortunately, a noticeable lack of polish in the writing – the dialogue in particular – really holds this one back from becoming something truly special, which is a real shame when you consider the fact that it features some of the best illustrations of these iconic characters that you're ever likely to find.

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Mar 21, 2017

    Freddie Williams continues his dynamic work here but puts in way too much details per page. Most of it is lost in a fury of colours and details. You can only savour the comic if you read it slowly. There are so many details hidden everywhere. But these details do get in the way of the storytelling and the action looks off in many of the panels. Read Full Review

    GWW - Percy Waelchl Mar 15, 2017

    In today's story, He-Man and Lion-O learned that working together allows people to accomplish more than doing things alone. Skeletor and Mumm-Ra found out that being greedy only hurts people, including themselves. Read Full Review

    IGN - Blair Marnell Mar 16, 2017

    David and Goldfine have treated the story like an excuse to mash up characters from both franchises, and admittedly, some of their dialogue choices have not been great. But it's really a lot of fun to see Lion-O and He-Man fight side-by-side against their greatest enemies with the fate of the multiverse on the line. Read Full Review
