I still wish we could get some concrete estimates on digital sales. People hope it will breath life into publishing, but nothing has been revealed to show that it is the future of publishing.
I've just changed my profile picture because we got Geldor in MOTUC!
I love comics on my iPad. I had pretty much stopped reading them before they had those. I don't read a ton now, but I do follow a few titles from companies that make it easy for me. I love that I can read the stories any time I want and don't have to worry about storage and long boxes. I was never much of a collector. I just liked the stories. But I think in order to really get more people reading them everyone needs to publish day and date and they need to be $1.99 max. Having the same price as the print edition is just backwards, even though I know they don't want to make retailers mad.
I've also have yet to see a splash page work well on a tablet. It's either cut in half or smaller than the printed pages.

Wow, looks like I was living under this universe's rock for the past few days! This is absolutely amazing news. For me, MOTU always existed in the comics. Filmation wasn't exactly what I hoped for He-Man, however MYP and 200X did somehow come close to my favorite He-Man canon.
I hope this new DC series will rock. Can't wait enough for June, it's my birthday month after all.
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
I love it when a plan comes together.
I'll try it out.
I'm pretty free thinking when it comes to MOTU stuff. I'm not a hardcore freak unless it comes to Adam/Teela.
But I'll try the mini
Obey the whip!
Smile like you mean it.
Unless it becomes a runaway sucess, or is the prequel to an ongoing... I just don't see that many trades anymore of the smaller runs of independent products...
There's still a FEW mini-series that i'm waiting for that held a much higher 'importance' rate than this does...
Yeah... I'll probably always disagree with this
I got into it in pre-filmation... That freaking awesome Castle was MY selling point... and I learned to read with those pre-filmation comics...
But REGARDLESS of that... I still believe that the line would have crashed and burned without filmation feeding the fire.
Honestly, the 'he-man story' isn't ALL that 'AMAZING'... Pre-filmation can PRETTY much be summed up with 'Bad guy wants mcguffin. Good guy has to stop him. Bad guy also wants good guy's girl. She needs rescuing.'
I LOVE them... but it's the same story as a hundred OTHER toylines out there that didn't go anywhere.
There was an interview around here with the original writer that drained a LOT of my respect for the era... something about knowing the CREATOR didn't care about it hurt me a lot
We have three distinctly different continuities... I think the 'reality rewrite' is to streamline them and erase any particular expectation.

However, it does make sense to group MOTU stories into their own character universes because it does allow writers a little freedom where they don't HAVE to stick with everything that is officially established by other writers. Certain key elements need to remain the same, but using the perspective of the multiverse theory when it comes to fiction, it can be more accepted by the multi faceted fanbase that MOTU has.
But, if you want to get technical, the canon universe that could be considered the official, original 'MOTU PRIME' would more than generally be the universe created in the original mini-comics since they were the first published stories of MOTU from Mattel. So, yes, that would mean the source He-Man was a barbarian jungle warrior of Eternia recruited by a green sorceress/goddess to wear a harness that augmented his strength to do battle against a power hungry undead tyrant from the planet of Infinitia over a castle and two swords that contained the 'ultimate' powers of the universe.
BY THE POWER OF GREYSTONE! I am the power.
But didn't the Mini Comics become more in line with Filmation and ditched the Previous Universe, wouldn't that validate Filmation more than the 4 mini comics?But, if you want to get technical, the canon universe that could be considered the official, original 'MOTU PRIME' would more than generally be the universe created in the original mini-comics since they were the first published stories of MOTU from Mattel.

FINALLY!! GLIMMER IS IN MY SHELF!! Crita is coming... Now I NEED SONGSTER! The Awesometastic Bard!
According to DC's July solicitations, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1 comes out on July 4th and will have a variant cover.
Looking forward to seeing what the Wilkins variant cover looks like. Could be very cool.
Well, of course MTV thinks it's cheesy. I mean, come on, it isn't cool like Big time Rush or Snooky. Get with it people!
Hard to judge a book without seeing it, but Robinson does tend to have a bit more respect for what has come before than a lot of today's comic book writers, and his storytelling is usaully pretty solid. Here's hoping it goes over well (be funny if it out-performs all the big DCNU stuff out right now, wouldn't it? This cheesy concept outselling all the cool stuff from cool people like Jim Lee; there would be a story...)
"I will use this power for all the good that can be done, to work for peace, to encourage virtue, and above all, to preserve life in all its forms..." Superman
Skeletor by Dave Wilkins...
can't wait to see his cover!!
there is NOTHING cheesy about an image like this IMO, but to be fair, Skeletor isn't 16 and pregnant.
