    Dark Horse has had great success with their two previous He-Man titles, The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Minicomic Collection so why not a complete guide to the classic cartoons that started the whole He-Man phenomena?

    Do we know if this is only going to be the Filmation series? Based on the article, it seems to be that way. I personally would have liked it if they would include the Jetlag New Adventures and MYP He-Man series too, as I already have the original book that James published for the Filmation He-Man series. Either way, it will be nice for it to have pictures to go along with it, and include She-Ra as well.

    Another book? We JUST got the mini-comics book! Not only are He-Man and She-Ra taking over my toy collection, but now they are looking to overtake my bookshelf as well?

    A trilogy! Looking forward to this one as well. I'm glad it's only Filmation as well. I think one cannon at a time.

    Wow I saw it coming ,it's amazing !

    Perhaps I would have liked the book includes the all MOTU tv series, because i don't think NA and 200x have the strength to get their own books.
    Anyway this is GREAT!

    I want backgrounds ,backgrounds and backgrounds a lot .

    A perfect choice for author - it's fantastic when the right fans are selected for official media. So long to wait - In the meantime I'll have to tide myself over by rereading the unofficial guide.

    Unlike this new guide, that one is pictureless. Plus I'm sure James will add more trivia.

    I have James' previous Filmation He-Man guide, but I'll probably get this one too since it includes She-Ra.

    I too have Busta's book but I'll get this version... not for the She-Ra content (don't care) but to show my consumer support of all things MOTU from Dark Horse.

    I am super stoked about this for a couple of reasons.

    1. James is a stand up awesome guy and he deserves this. I can't wait to see what animation art is included I am sure it is massive amounts!

    2. This is going to be great to remind casual fans of He-man. Most people remember the show and have nostalgic memories of it. I can see this out selling the previous 2 books due to that fact!

    Wow, Dark Horse are doing some great stuff with the MOTU property! Will this include NA and 200X? I hope so. If not then it would be nice if there was a second book dealing with those two series.

    I don't think it does, but I am sure if the demand is there then Dark Horse will do it!
