I'd love to see a new version of Skeletor's origins in the horror genre!
This has a good chance of being really awesome. :skgrin:
Yep, I'm definitely optimistic about this one!
When I was a kid I remember thinking about what a scary character this was... and wondered about his "people" after the mini-comic...
Also since he reminded me so much of the Mexican version of Zorak, I liked him even more!!
Here's a new interview with the writer of this one-shot:
Masters of Horror. ;)
Really looking forward to this one. I'm hoping he keeps the Keldor aspect, but goes in a different direction.
looks really interesting... can't wait!
This is out today - anyone know if this will be available digitally too?
Gonna go get it right now. Can't wait to read it. :tjeek:
I'm really looking forward to this! I seem like a rare fan who has enjoyed the DC comics so far, so I really want to see what they do. I like the Keldor-> facial disfigurement in battle with Randor-> bonding with Demo Man to save his life-> driven bat crap crazy origin a lot, but I won't be disappointed if this story deviates. I like to think of MOTU like actors in a troupe...sometimes they tell different stories and act out different tales.
Just read it. I liked it! It's different than the story in Classics, but not drastically so.
Is it out yet?
As far as PHYSICAL comics, the hurricane might have slowed down UPS if you're on the East Coast. We'd get them tomorrow.
Going to try to snag this one at lunch time. I completely missed that this was a real comic and not a digital.....coolness!
Got the digital version and read it.
In Comixology it's not in same category as earlier digital "Masters of the Universe"
or the printed "He-Man and the Masters of the Universe" comics.
It has it's own section: "Origins of Eternia"
Not a terribly fresh take on the origin.
- "Keldor-first-born, son of Miro, brother of Randor"
- "Gar are unpure"
aspects that Scott's story in MOTUC Bios has been telling since 2008.
Just read it. Interesting take on the story.
A lot of missing info though tat will probably be explained later.
And Miro is confirmed to be a racist prick.
The story-line is as Jukka says above, but the ARTWORK is fantastic! It is so moody... silent... dark! I just LOVED how this story looked, especially the way colour was used and how the whole thing is on the edge of something like Keldor'a hallucination. Keldor swings between regret and detemrination... Hordak appears to be truly demonic and monstrous - a great interpretation! And best of all, Keldor is very sympathetic. I really enjoyed just looking at how this was done. Awesome.
This is my favourite of all the recent comics. However, considering how bad most of them have been (though I liked Orko's) that's not hard.
:skgrin: The writing is superb in this one ... really, really loved the interaction between Randor and Keldor.
The art is a bit uneven: some panels are highly epic and atmospheric, others seem a little to clinical for my taste. But the vision of death on his rocky throne ... what a stunning piece of work. I didn't care for the heavy black outline on some of the painted pages, it rather diminished the quality of the paintwork (which was very high, in my opinion).
All in all I consider this issue to be the best of the new DC series.
It was okay. I liked the interaction b/w the two as well. I liked Keldor wandering with his face melting, and the flashbacks. Can't say I like the emphasis on him being a creation of Hordak and racism, rather than his downfall also being due to his own evil nature and actions.
