I find it funny all the people here surprised that the comic is selling like mad, even with a new character the majority doesn't yet know about, and for a few reasons:
1. Look at that cover. Gorgeous.
2. He-Man to most folks was a sword and sorcery tale; seeing a knight on the cover isn't exactly that out-of-place to them.
2. You're looking at this entirely from the perspective of long-devoted fans who all but know the ins-and-outs of the brand and its history, which is why you take some issue with it.
Tell me: when you were 5 years old and you saw a new character on the cover of the comics, did you care that it was a character you never heard of before, or did you want to know more about the character?
I don't think your first reaction was honestly "oh god, they're shoe-horning some other stupid character into this?" as it is today.
Well y'know what? The kids reading it now see it the same way you did when you were a kid.
And the adults buying it now are just enjoying further adventures of the characters from Eternia that they grew up with, and getting to meet some new ones as well.
Ya gotta consider that when the franchise is being branched out again in terms of exposure. I kinda think a lot of you are looking at this from a really limited perspective.

I think we are in for good things. The digital comic was actually a pretty good read. It serves as an interesting introduction and a hint of what's to come. I have a gut feeling we are going to see bigger things soon enough.
We just have to support the line and purchase the comics as they come.
We survived the long night.... MOTU Forever!
People have been nervous about MOTU pretty much since the end of 200X. It's just been the general mood. I think people feel like if that big relaunch failed then things could fall apart at any moment.
Say what you want about Mattel's handling of the line - the success of MOTU shows that they've actually done one thing VERY right. They are making great toys right now and releasing them in a format that was unheard of for a major toy company. And it's been a huge success. I do wish Mattel had done more to keep the brand active. But this comic is definitely a great step in the right direction.
hehe i would like to buy 10 copys just for support lol

The comic is good. Really good. But it doesn't show him in his armor and there's almost no link to MOTU. I like SLL and this comic only improves on that. I would love to see a Spector comic. Can he be salvaged by a good story?
I think it was a masterful strategy that the first comic is about SLL , the character and the story was created by the main creative responsible from DC, geoff Johns attracts people.This caught the attention of DC fans, I read several of them excited about the comic.
results in sight.
Well, this comic was my first digital comic purchase. As much as I really want a printed copy, I don't see it happening. But if they do print these out, I will still get them. Plus I couldn't wait to read the issue.
KingRandor82 - I'm not surprised the comic sells well with the logo Masters of the Universe on it, but you make some mistaken assumptions in your post, mostly about kids reading comics. Sadly, most comic readers are not kids, and haven't been for a VERY long time. The comic book industry depends on the die-hards, a lot of whom likely are at least peripherally aware of MOTU and He-Man. The fact that this book is selling well even without He-Man or Skeletor on the cover likely has less to do with a cool cover and a knight on the inside than the recognition factor of the title itself and the promotion of the upcoming series, which, to me, is even better news as it says there is still strength in the brand beyond just the toy line and its followers.
And, for the record, as a kid, I was a WHOLE LOT more likely to pick up a book if I recognized the characters on the cover; I passed on the Legion for years for that very reason, even though it eventually became a favorite of mine once I did try it.
