    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.
    Good. Lord. (Of the evil warriors.)

    Anyone has a link to a hi-res version of this? I MUST have it as a wallpaper!

    EDIT: Oh, on deviantart! Here it is

    Skeletor could use some tweaks, but pretty neat overall.

    I asked him in the past- it is the Diamond Ray of Disappearance. Dude knows his stuff- and he's extremely kind with his fan base and interacts a lot.

    Cheesy? No. Frightening, disturbing, making even the heroes want to wet their furry trunks just looking at him? Yes. But definitely not cheesy.

    Now that is a classic version of Skeletor in every way, and still totally evil, terrifying, even. There ain't a thing wrong with the property, just with some of the folks who think they are much cooler than they actually are.

    Cheesy, indeed.

    There's no harm in them soliciting a trade for it.
    6 issues has become the standard arc length for a trade, so I think it was setup for potential trade release. And if a trade solicitation doesn't work, they can always cancel the trade release.

    That Skeletor pic is lovely. The Filmation-esque throne gave me tingles. No joke! Wonder what that cube is? Probably something to do with time travel or some such.

    I wonder what it is that Adam will be doing in the woods before the Sorceress appears. Sleeping under a tree?

    On the other hand maybe we'll get less splash pages and more focus on storytelling again.

    Amen. That's one technique that's been used and abused so much it's virtually useless as a storytelling technique. Thankfully it's calmed down quite a bit in recent years.

    I like when it's used for impact purposes, but yeah you guys are right it's been abused. the 90s everything was a splash page

    I think Stracyzinski did something similar with Thor a few years back too. And I think there have been a couple others.

    Anybody who is seriously considering buying this mini series, if you're already a comic book fan, PLEASE PRE ORDER it from your Local Comic Shop vendor. Most of you don't need me to explain why this is important, but for the rest, it's because the number of customers who pre order will determine how many copies of the comic that the Comic Shop will order, which in turn will determine how successful the series is. The more people who pre order it, the more likely the Comic Shop owner is to think "Hmmm, there's some interest here, I think I'll order 20 copies for the shelf instead of just 10".

    If the first issue sells around 40,000 copies, then it'll be more successful than a lot of DC & Marvel's superhero properties, and the more likely we are to get a follow up mini series, or even an ongoing series!

    And if the story's terrible, then you can always cancel it after #1 - but hopefully that won't be the case!
