    MOTU DC Comic Relaunches As He-Man: The Eternity War

    NEW NAME FOR THE ONGOING DC COMIC!

    He-Man: The Eternity War

    Starting in December 2014, the comic series gets a new name!



    And based on the article, sounds like it's going to be an epic story with He-Man, She-Ra and their allies against Hordak in a fight for Eternia!

    These are great news (great enough to deserve their own thread)!!!

    This is the best thing that could cappen for the DC MOTU ongoing. Relaunching it with the same creative team (Dan Abnett, Pop Mhan, Rob David, Stjepan Šejić). I believe that Abnett's, Mhan's and David's work deserved more credit, and the relaunch is a great opportunity to regain a bit of attention for the MOTU comic book.

    The interview opens the possibility for any kind of epicness. All the players are now on board, so let the game to begin.

    Also very glad to see that Stjepan Šejić will continue to make the covers for the ongoing. They are absolute fantastic.

    And it was a good choise to promote the relaunch through IGN, a highly popular site.

    There is also Comic Book Resources that has an article for the new ongoing:

    HOLY CRAP ON A STICK!!!!

    I just submitted this for the frontpage, unless Jukka beat me to it!

    (I think that's Loo-Kee too)

    • The Snake Men look awesome! Sssqueeze has a Tyrannosaurus head going on there. LOL!
    • King Hsss is fighting against his own Snake Men, I guess because they serve the Green Teela Goddess.
    • He-Man is still wearing pants. Lame.
    • I guess She-Ra is a Master now. She-Ra has taken Teela's place as the token female and Teela has taken the Sorceress' place as the mentor/oracle.

    I think they relaunced the book because #1's always do really well and Kieth Giffen's stuff lost alot of the fans. With a new writer, it's a great jumping on point.

    LOL. Makes more sense.

    Though still don't understand why Loo-Kee doesn't have his pointy ears.



    I'm just so glad this news is out. I see it as a good thing. The next step.

    -A way to draw more attention to the comic series (as some people don't still know there is a He-Man comic from DC).
    -Plus added bonus of She-Ra being there (it seems) next to him on these adventures.
    -Hopefully none of that "oh the comic will end at #18" talks, that didn't even have lot of base to begin with. (Rob David spoke highly of the series in that one interview before)
    -Same team is the best news. It really is the same ongoing comic. But with a new name.

    This relaunch with a "new" writer will help fans get over the short, but questionable Giffen run. The fans who left probably never heard of Abnett.

    VERY cool! SO glad they're keeping the current team; and yeah, like others have said, hopefully this'll get the attention of anyone who dropped it during the initial run.

    But unfortunately, He-Man is still wearing pants. WHEN are they freaking going to let that go?

    Mattel has been trying to pants on He-Man for at least 20 years (start with New Adventures). I think we're pretty much stuck with it.

    As a side note, is this a reboot of the current comic, or a continuation of the story?

    This is a continuation of the story in the current ongoing series.

    That picture is amazing! So pleased they are continuing the series. I have enjoyed it from the beginning, despite the flaws.

    I'm actually appreciating the pants. Nice move, Mattel and DC.
    If Jack Bauer was on Lost, everything would have been solved in 24 hours!

    If Jack Bauer was on Heroes, he wouldn't need to save the cheerleader to save the world.

    Squeeeze and Tung Lashor look great. So glad that Skeletor's finally coming back, too.

    Yeah the Eternity War is continuing the story of the current ongoing. The solicitation of this November's issue #19 that is out now, pretty much confirmed it:

    HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #19
    Written by ROB DAVID
    Art by JOELLE JONES
    Cover by STJEPAN SEJIC
    On sale NOVEMBER 26 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US • FINAL ISSUE
    The secrets of the House of Grayskull are revealed! Flash back to Prince Adam’s childhood, when rebellion struck King Randor’s throne. What does this moment in time mean for the future war in Eternia? Find out in this prelude to MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE: THE ETERNITY WAR #1!

    http://i.newsarama.com/images/i/000/...jpg?1408390145

    This last issue will be written by Rob David. It seems also that is the first issue of the current ongoing with Skeletor as a protagonist. And once again a great cover by Stjepan Šejić. In this case it's not a battle, but it is more touching and personal.

    I just wish they would stop renumbering series' back to #1. If the current story continues, keep the numbering going. No need to return to a #1. And on that, I'm really looking forward to this!!

    Not really a big fan of comics renumbering at the start of each story arc. Especially when they're keeping the same artists. Otherwise the comic has been pretty good and there's a lot of potential for this run.

    I believe that in this case the relaunch was necessary, because unfortunately the current ongoing was penalized by Giffen's writting during the first arc and the mediocre art of the first two issues of the second arc that draw off a lot of readers. With the relaunch there is an opportunity for a fresh start and at the same time to give the chance to the current creative team to bring back those readers that were disappointed by Giffen's work.
    Renumbering is a tactic that is used a lot by Marvel and Disney comics, so for me is not a problem. The most important thing is that the current creative team will continue their work.
    And there is the possibility that if this series do well, will eventually lead to two MOTU series. A He-Man and a She-Ra comic book.

    What granamyr80 said.

    Also He-Man still flies under the radar. I constantly see on DC Comics' official facebook-site comments such as "wait! There is a He-Man comic! And they are on Issue #13?" and "He-Man is a DC Comic?"...

    So for the title getting a re-numbering helps draw attention.
    Especially if we get She-Ra right alongside with He-Man in said adventures.

    Many fans have attested that they've started enjoying the comic series around Issue #12, or start of #13. And I'm glad that story will be continued with same team.
