    Scott has said that DC is it's own continuity completely. This may be an entirely new origin.

    I'm guessing being forced to join the Eternian Little League Baseball team by King Miro...

    it's Motu... i read it.. and i'm not a comic guy at all.. i own only Motu comics.. but to be honest it could have had one page with Skellly saying.. "BAM!!!!! I've changed" The End i would buy it.. i'm a motu addict and can't help it.. it's too bad most have these feelings about it being so terrible but i look at it this way.. the more venues and avenues we get to expose MOTU the better!! so bring it on.. bring em all on

    I just read it and I actually enjoyed most of it. The art was decent and I don't like that style a lot but thought it was done in a proper manner. I really liked the Horde members for some reason. I like the blank look for them as if Hordak just mind wiped them and shaved em down to lose their identities. I really can't wait to see more of Hordak but I hope he looks more familiar soon. Also, the different direction is ok with me.

    I don't know what the writers are trying to achieve here, whatever it is, it's not really working. Go back and do adventurous and battle related stories instead of clinging on Batman's dark universe...

    It was a little reminiscent of the whole Loki - Thor relationship from Marvel. Certainly not a traditional MOTU action and battle story. I think it doesn't win any fans for Miro and, to a degree, Randor. I wish the writer and the characters would have spent a little more time on why a half Gar king is a bad idea rather than just flatly accept it as a matter of fact. You're the king Miro, you can change the law! Their whole stance is just like saying a black gay woman can't be president because we've never had one.

    Another thing that would have helped the issue is a little more backstory on just what Keldor did! "You betrayed us" is all we got. How horrible was the betrayal and damage?
    My MOTUC top 10 wants (POST NYTF 2014):

    Queen Angella - Hunga the Harpy - Peekablue -Mermista - Veena - Red Knight - Vultak - Dylamug - Sibyline - Kex Queen
