    Mhan states that this rendition of Roboto was before Mattel added a few tweaks that we see in the comic.

    Nice Roboto. However I'm not a fan of the classic 'duck bill' Roboto head. Not saying they should simply replace it with the 200X head, but a different interpretation would be nice. Though Roboto has already appeared in the pages I can't say I can tell clearly if his head is like that in the comics. It seems that whenever he's on the page he's one of the Masters in the background and not drawn in as much detail as He-man and Teela etc (either that or that is Pop's style ).

    Zatanna is going to be involved in the crossover!!! Awesome. Who is the blonde dork supposed to be who is with Zatanna, Teela and He-Man?


    And for fans who dislike the new interpretation of the sword, it appears that in many of the new cover art and etc. for the forthcoming issues, the sword still seems to retain it's iconic shape. It resembles the classic sword more than the 200x one did.

    The blonde guy is John Constantine, the leader of Justice League Dark. He was played in Keanu Reeves in a live-action movie a few years back.

    Well said! I agree this sword looks more to the original than the 200x sword. I for one like the new sword as well as the new Dc canon. Just saying.

    I had a suspicion it was Constantine, but didn't think so since his hair was dark like in the movie. The movie was also so-so for me. Didn't hate it but didn't love it either.

    Nice cover.

    Interior art still looks awful. The artists have managed to find a way to rob these iconic characters of every bit of personality that they have had for the past 30+ years.

    I'd rather not have a comic at all if this slop is what we're going to continue to get. It's like they just don't care.

    The costume change is as awful as I feared.

    And what they did to the sword...ugh.

    This series is as bad as MOTUC is great.

    Well...it sounds like we're going to find out what happened to Queen Marlena. Probably violently murdered when Adora was kidnapped. I think that suits the theme of how the women are treated in this comic thus far.

    The last page of He-Man/Randor looked good and the Despera pages look good. The first couple pages in that preview...the art looked pretty bad, though. Hopefully, it looks mostly good.

    That new outfit and sword are still as terrible looking as ever. It's going to be the death of this comic, mark my words.

    I just realized my last post was a bit of a downer, so I just wanted to add that I love Despera and her story line. I'm very excited to see how it all plays out and what will happen with her relationship with Teela. I LOVED the flashback when they were kids. If Teela and Adam weren't bickering back and forth when Teela was retelling the story, it would have been perfect. After I finished that comic, I went back and just read the parts of her retelling it and I just loved those pages so much!

    Despera is probably the only character in the comic that is very complex, gets a back story and is growing, changing, showing different emotions. She's just so well done, thus far! She's so cold hearted and fierce, but then you see a glimpse of kindness and warmth. A+ on her characterization.

    The comic is a mixed bag for me because I really love some things and other things...not so much. The comic has so much potential! I really hope they can iron out some things like Teela's personality and the unnecessary violence/gore...and start treating the female characters better. I'm told the treatment of ladies is a problem in ALL current DC comics though.

    Interesting...

    • The Power Sword is a huge Buster Sword now?
    • Marlena looks like Adora...is she blonde too or greatly resembles her?
    • Randor didn't know about his daughter?!!
    • Interesting tidbit from Shadow Weaver about the power of Eternian queens.

    Hopefully we can find out about Marlena further in the issue.

    I really liked it. I love that Shadow Weaver is a key player in this...at least until they kill her for being female... Hopefully Marlena is still alive...

    Come on guys...in what alternate universe is this "art" good? Much less, great?

    I know we're all desperate for some MOTU goodness, but how low can standards of acceptance be?

    I mean, if this art is good, then I need my eyes checked.

    Taste is relative, Big! All artists have their fans. It's how Rob Liefeld still has a career. How I wish Emiliano or Axel Jimenez were drawing this. Jim Lee, Joe Mad, Frank Cho or J. Scott Campbell would be a dream!

    Am I the only one thinking that Shadow Weaver could be Marlena corrupted by dark magic? Feeling dejected she fled Eternia seeking Hordak?

    I'm enjoying this comic and the direction they've chosen. Upset about the Sorceress though.

    I believe this article says it better than I ever could...

    I realize taste is relative, but it's disappointing when so many MOTU fans have developed a taste for spoiled meat.

    I think you're talking about spoiled meat to the hungry and starving. MOTU fans are so grateful to have a comic after so many years without.

    Unfortunately, while the art might get better depending on the creative team, the books direction is still dictated by Mattel.

    I agree 100%. It's just a pity that folks are receptive to this...I'd rather see the comic fail and Mattel/DC ask themselves "Hm...a toy line that runs for 5-7 years with virtually no advertising based on a property who's heydey was almost 30 years ago and the comic FAILS? What COULD we be doing wrong? Oh wait, let's put some people on this book that CARE about a property with an obviously loyal and loving fanbase and we'll make MORE money!"

    Of course, that's just my personal pipe dream.
