    Masters of the Universe #8 Digital Comic - She-Ra *SPOILERS*

    There's a new digital comic available on comixology now, focusing on She-Ra.

    http://www.comixology.com/Masters-of...omic/DIG002285

     
    Haven't read it yet. But seeing the "female Hordak" kill Flutterina makes me sad - I did have a soft spot for that character. *sob*

    That looks more like a female in a Hordak costume tbh. It's probably Adora.

    1. Yeah, it's a good job I've just read the comic otherwise I'd lambast you for the spoiler in the title.

    2.
     
    It's Adora who killed Flutterina, not Hordak.


    3. I laughed at the appearance of a reaction of outrage when it doesn't bother me at all as part of a story, although I'm sure my favourable opinion will be in the minority.

    Since that scene is shown in the publically available preview pages, I didn't think that it fell under the spoiler rule. Sorry for that.


    Best DC MotU comic so far, IMO! Totally love it!

    Haven't read the comic; what were the ramifications of the death? What role did it play in moving the story forward?

    In other words, was it an important plot point, or just a lazy writer killing off a character for cheap shock effect?

    I think it's to show that Adora is following Shadow Weavers and Hordak's orders without question, and that she is a non-stop killing machine and just how under their control she really is.

    More of the latter IMO. That's my only negative criticism so far. Putting her into the comic at all clearly was meant to be an easter egg, but killing a random rebel warrior would've served the same purpose within the story.

    So did I. I thought it was much more fitting for the Force Captain of the Horde!

    I can't believe how much She-Ra we're getting this week! The update for the game AND a comic about her! I love Mattel so much right now...and the production Netossa looks so stunning! They've really brought their A-game regarding PoP right now.

    This comic...was the BEST MOTU comic out of the whole series. It was well-written, had a great story that makes you want to read more, the art was beautiful and Despera looks badass! She actually looks like Asajj Ventress, to me! The page near the end, when she's holding the dual swords.



    I would LOVE an action figure of her in MOTUC.

    This story was PERFECT, in my opinion and why I would LOVE a She-Ra movie, done like this. This is pretty much directly out of my mind...except for one thing that happened (see spoilers below):

     
    I was really excited to see Flutterina...until they murdered her. That's the ONLY thing I do not like about this comic. I do believe she is dead, because Despera told Shadow Weaver that 4 were dead. She has to be one of those four. They never should have killed a member of the Great Rebellion on their first appearance. I mean...DAMN!
    Take part in Illumina Day! Let people know who she is and help get her in MOTUC.

    Yup. Dead is never dead in comics. She will return- but yknow was it really a fatal wounding? She was just run thru. Could've missed her organs?
    Oh, and Adora's short hair is awesome. Nice look. She just needs the violet eyeshadow as in Filmation.

    I enjoyed this and I'm not a huge She-Ra fan. I really like that they took Adora to such a dark place with her actually killing for the Horde. My only gripe is that mind control was involved. Personally, I think Adora's backstory works better if she were simply raised to be a brutal killer without the need for mind control.

    And I'm in the camp, that says the events we're seeing are not because of the altered reality in the main series. We're at the point where Adora hasn't discovered her destiny yet so this issue is part of her official DC established origin.

    To those who believe Adora is dreaming about Swift Wind, can you tell me where you're seeing this horse's shadow?

    Ok my comics app just told me there was an update to this comic alone, so anyone know if anything changed.
    And so I walk, into the searing light which banishes all darkness, surrendering my face and form to atoms of dust, seeking the true darkness of peace,the cool shadows of eternity and the unknown fate of nothingness

    Not that I'm aware of. Maybe the comics apps is alerting folks because of Comixology's year-end lists or something?

    They have a section for 2012's Digital Firsts in "The Best Of 2012" section, which has the SLL issue...
