The last three questions and answers were really interesting! I like the sound of this:
"I've taken that as part of my inspiration and am now making what I believe to be a story that is a nice sophistication of those old TV shows, which used the villains primarily for comic relief. It's slightly more serious but not without the same sense of wonder, excitement and fun the TV show provided to its fans."
I also found it interesting that it's being done on the west coast entirely and is barely a DC comic except that they are publishing it.

That Skeletor pic is amazing!!! I so can not wait to get this mini-series. I am glad to see they are making Skeletor scary.

Skeletor looks mean as hell - and that is the most important thing to me (beside him actually still looking like Skeletor - which he does here). I like how Robinson describes his depiction of Skeletor. I like that he's raising the havoc staff because to me that implies a focus on his magical powers in this series - which I'd like to see. But he's also big and muscular and veiny - I'd love to see this guy moving around on a screen somewhere. Interesting that there is no sword here.
I'm fine with Snake Mountain here.
I can't wait to get this!
I love that Skeletor cover!

I love the loss of memory idea, great to reboot the franchise with adam as a woodsmen but i think we will find alot of what took place before hand is what we know already, both a kick off and a continuation ... what obinson does best, just read JSA trade one
Nice interview and really cool cover! I like it better than the He-Man one, I think. After reading this interview, I still do not think Robinson has any idea about the MYP cartoon or the MVC comics. He mentions Filmation, the 4H toyline (I think he means the 200X toyline) and comics (which, could mean anything). He keeps saying that Skeletor, Beastman, etc. were always played comedic, but that's not so much the case in the newer MOTU stuff. *shrugs*
I'm very excited for the 6 issues still!

That cover looks wicked cool, I can't wait to get these.
Umm...ToyGuru, can we have a Skeletor variant in MOTUC that looks like this cover, like right away - huh, huh, can we????
Filmation Snake Mountain, Palace of Eternia, and Castle Grayskull still are the best design wise...nothing else, in any media, comes close.
i hope there's more to it than memory wipe. it sounds like he replaced their memory. and he would have had to do something to put them in their new lives. if they awoke on the battle field, they'd all be looking at each other wondering why the hell their on a battle field.
The series sounds very cool overall, and I'm pleased with what Robinson is doing on the new Earth 2 comic so far, so I'm looking forward to his turn on Masters.
My only gripe is that he seems to be following the trend of calling the heroic warriors "Masters of the universe"
Most wanted: Lodar and Despara!
Out of ALL of the Filmation episodes he has to watch and talk about, he picks the single worst episode of the entire series to use as "just an example." My Stuff-And-Nonsense meter is picking up here... Typical cynical writer throwing passive-aggressive shade and barbs at beloved original material while professing love for it so as not to tick off old-series fans? CHECK.
"Yep! And now I'm gonna blast ya!"

He got me when he mentioned Frazetta.Everything sounds great, canīt wait
That Skeletor art is bananas! I love it
I dig the Skeletor cover. I wish we could have had a new vintage toy/Filmation inspired Snake Mountain, but I'm still cool with the MYP one.
Story-wise from what is described in the interview, I'm not really down with what everything I'm hearing. But hey, I'll still give it a shot.
After all, it took me a while to warm up to shock of some of the different approaches in the MOTUC toy canon, but there is a lot in there I like. I'm not sure why my old bones are still resistant to new canon takes.
LOVE the Skeletor cover!!
I'm hoping for a Disco Skeletor for the next subscription exclusive! Fully flocked!
