    What a fun little read! I got it yesterday and read it after cartoons (it was a grand day for toons yesterday!). This ish was a fantastic capper to it all!

    Anyone else kinda want an Or-Man figure now?

    Oh, and an adventure like this gives us an in-Universe excuse for the Mini-Masters we've been coveting...!
    Not to sound like a creepy cheerleader for Uki, but it's nice to know there is at least one person on this forum who is extremely positive & friendly all the time. I don't think I could be that nice even if you paid me. If we ever give out awards for "forum member of the month", Uki gets my vote. -Mr. Shokoti

    This was AMAZING! Some of you are taking this way too seriously.

    Loved the Batman cameo, including a Dark Knight Returns panel, Jessica Rabbit, cute Panthor.

    I read it the first time and thought it was interesting visually but a not so good story... After reading it a second time I REALLY enjoyed it. A very cool LSD MOTU trip.

    I felt ripped off... and less intelligent after reading it.

    I just read it right now...and wow, what a strange issue, I LOVED it. It was a fun read, it reminded me of the Tiny Titans and Super Hero Squad issues I bought for my niece a while back but with more zaniness to it, Motu style! I do hope we'll get more one-shots in the future, I really like them all (#1 not so much). The 8 bit scene and the one that reminded me of Calvin and Hobbes were pretty cool! All in all, a good issue!

    I really liked the comic. It was fun and trippy and I loved the different art styles used. Very in tone with Orko.

    Interesting read to be sure. It was fun and different than any other MOTU story I have read or watched. I did not LOVE it but I did not hate it either.

    If this is the best they can do for the future of Masters of the Universe in media then they should leave it alone,they obviously had no creativity going into writing and producing this comic,the constant refrences to Batman,Pac-man,Spongebob all show how they had no ideas for Orko.

    I know comics are supposed to be fun but that was a disaster,imo,the other comics have been great and some good new twists on the He-man story but this for me was a huge let down.

    This has been the first issues I just plain didn't like. I didn't like the art style's and hated all the 'out of universe' references, it just took the whole spell gone wrong concept way too far IMO.

    Cracking issue, I thoroughly enjoyed it! The change up in art styles was a lot of fun and fit perfectly with this cool little Orko tale.

    That was zany! It was a lark, and am glad they didn't go all dark with Orko. It was sort of like something you'd see in a Bat-Mite or Mr. Mxyzptlk story.

    I thought it was a lot of fun.
    Bit filmation, bit of fun poked at other properties.
    I think it's great they are trying different things with these digital comics - serious/horror/noir/comedy - they are cheap enough an if nothing else hopefully it helps gauge what aspects of MOTU the majority if fans prefer.

    It was just simply fun, which I think out of us could use.

    I have to say my fav parts were the Jessica Rabbit Sorceress and the Orko Dark knight Returns panel.

    Was fun seeing all the different references to a lot of things
    the ignore list is my new best friend

    That was one of my favorite panels too.
    I actually thought this issue was a blast and it's a perfect place for experimentation.

    I absolutely loved everything about this one.

    I've generally liked all the digital comics (even "Evil-Lyn Noir") more than the main series, but this one was probably my favorite so far.

    So is The Sorceress' new low-cut a permanent change from Orko's spells from this issue? lol

    lol....luckily he didn't ask. Instead he wants to know when the new cartoon is coming out. I told him I don't know but if it did it would be pretty cool. I'm all for a little bit darker story, but I love the family friendly aspect He-man always had. I don't really want adult only R-Rated He-man (ie. Sin City Evil Lyn) Orko was fun and I'm looking forward to a few more like it. (How bout a Gwildor issue!)

    I can see how everyone enjoyed it, and I found a few fun surprises in there like Batman as well. But I was still disappointed with this issue. It feels like DC is just trying to fill a quota for Mattel and don't really care about MOTU. Scott's 3 mini-comics did a better job at telling a story and pushing Eternia and the characters forward. I think my disappointment stems from my hopes that these one shots would do the same, kind of like Man-At Arms and Randor, simple storys that really pushed or opened up the characters in a new needed light. Evil-Lyn and Orko did not do that for me. And what happened to the main comic book, how often are they releasing it? Feels like it's been months.

    The delay in the comic (the next issue isn't even a regular issue, it's the Skeletor origin issue) isn't helping perception of these, I suppose. But I think it's best to think of these as featurettes on a DVD rather than a main story.

    Kudos on the Mr. Mxyzptlk reference... !!! That's not a name you hear every day, to be sure!!! Hope you are well.

    Funny reference to other toons which you would only get away with in this Orko issue!
    Overall not so bad

    I cant make up my mind if i absolutly love it or really really hate it - there's no inbetween. On the neg side the artwork before and after Orko's magic is really poor, but on the other, the middlle stuff really did look like Orko's mind which was good and there were some funny moments. And as for Jessica Sorceress...

    Considering it only cost $1. You cant really complain about price
    If there's something strange in the neighbourhood, who you gonna' call? HE-MAN!!!!
