    Post your support for the Masters of the Universe Newspaper Strips!

    Hey guys, I was able to purchase a copy of the Newspaper Strips storyline Ninjor Strikes from Power Con signed by Chris Weber. Afterwards I went to the Panel and was able to meet and speak with Chris and his wife Karen.

    They have all 13 of the original stories complete and original from the papers. Both of them are major He-man fans and are very interested in getting these out to the fans in some way. They are looking into a website initially that would let fans at least look at the strips and read them. They also stated interest in eventually making a book with all these strips.

    Let them know your interest! These stories are quite interesting as they had a lot more leeway from Mattel in what they could do such as a love interest for Man at Arms!

    Chris and Karen said I could contact them and keep you guys updated so stay tuned

    YES! I'd love for there to be a physical re-printing of these strips, didn't even know they existed till some years ago on the internet. So did he work on the one where King Hiss releases that giant snake that wasn't Serpos? Remember seeing old scans of that and would love to see those more professionally scanned like with the Power & Honor foundation has been collecting and restoring old concepts, that comic had a ton of detail within, and it deserves that kind of loving restoration.
    Can he print and distribute those as a collected edition independently (like as a Kickstarter project) or does it have to be under Mattel?

    OMG !!!

    That's a terrific news !
    I've been collecting those original strips for a long time and I have more than 50 sundays colored strips right now.
    The Gerald Forton art is awesome !!! Just like Filmation character design...take a look at Spikor and Two Bad (below).
    I remember the last stories publicated here in Brazil were about 'New Adventures'.

    Do you really think Chris Weber has ALL stories, specially the first one (which he did not worked on it) ?
    Is there any way I contact him ? Does he has a website ?
    The newspaper strips stories are much better than vintage DC or Marvel comics and certanly the MOTU rarest publication ever !!!
    I am sure Mattel don't have those strips anymore...
    My stuff is avaiable for Chris anytime he wants..
