The "GAH!" panel reminds me of an Engineer from Prometheus.
I don't like the flashback art. Looks like they're gonna go with the Demon-Man/Keldor hybrid?!
Hordak looked a bit weird in this incarnation. Overall, the issue was okay, still glossed over a few parts such as how did Keldor lose his face in this incarnation?
overall i like the origin of skeletor, but what is with Hordak? he looked like a sprigand from Skyrim...
I'm supposing in this new series, the writers are trying to play up Hordak more on the level as Eternia's version of the Devil, I suppose. It is nice to see the writers taking elements from the previous incarnations of MOTU. I think this is the first time the Gar race has been mentioned since the MYP cartoon series and they are still holding to the idea that Keldor is half Gar much like he was in that series.
It would be nice if, in the near future, the writers revisit the events leading up to Keldor's transformation to Skeletor like what kind of betrayal did he evoke that made him wind up wandering around with his face burning away?
So there clearly is more still to come. Here's the article: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2...-book/1668709/
Imo, the Origin of Skeletor comic really asks more questions than it answers. And continuing the story and bringing He-Man into the picture does nothing but complicate things. Can anyone tell me HOW Keldor got burned? Why?
Don't tell me it'll be addressed in the next "origin".
In all, I'm really disappointed in the series so far. Sucks.
Noticed this additional info. about Origin of He-Man on Comic Book Resources:
You had a one-shot for "Masters of the Universe" hit recently -- any more work in that realm of comics?
Yeah, I'm also doing the origin of He-Man, which is coming up with [artist] Ben Oliver. That's really fun because it's like a soft part two to "Skeletor." I think I actually changed He-Man's origin more than I changed Skeletor's. I wanted to really tie the two of them together so you can understand specifically why Skeletor hates He-Man so much. It always felt sort of arbitrary to me that he just hates this kid. "I hate you! I hate you, kid!" I took it and I followed up on a lot of themes of destiny and predetermination that are in the Skeletor one-shot. I'm incredibly excited -- Ben Oliver is such a badass. This past year, I've gotten to work with just the most amazing artists I've worked with ever in my career. It's really exciting.

There are NO MOTU comics coming out in February. The limited series wraps in January, but no signs of anymore one-shots or an extension of the series.
I guess we might find out in the final issue...We'll see if He-Man sets things straight and everyone wakes up in their original forms.
So far Dave Wilkins is the only one who made Evil-Lyn's new look work.

Great cover. Skeletor and Evil Lyn look amazing.
This issue's artist certainly was doing some fan service in the way Teela was drawn and inked. I thought the new issue was a decent installment. Moving the setting along now a little more.
Is there a digital comic out tomorrow?
I doubt it. And issue five of the main series comes out next month.
Wasn't there an interview where a Hordak origin comic was mentioned as well?
