    BOOM! A picture really is worth a thousands words. This series is RUINED by a million inkers and half assed art direction from editorial. Let the talent do there damn jobs and we would have solid stuff to be excited about.

    In general I'd have to agree with you. There's little worse than art/entertainment created by a committee. Give me a visionary's creation any day.

    He-Man's still wearing that stupid, emasculating suit.

    Frazier Irving is hit and miss. Teela in that pic is a miss.

    Yeah I'm not a fan of that cover. Hopefully the interior art looks better.

    Sure it is - if you happen to be a modestly talented ninth-grader with aspirations....

    Just about sums up the level of overall quality and care being put into these comics by the "creative" (sic) team. Pathetic.

    Giffen must be the only person on the planet who loves the monster he has created. Pygmalion crossed with Victor Frankenstein - and both gone wrong.

    I don't know why he doesn't just write He-Man out of the script entirely; he's now nothing more than Teela's sidekick anyway, a characterless two-dimensional cardboard cut-out dressed in a stupid rompersuit and looking more like a member of some second-rate boyband than any kind of hero. Emasculated is about right, Durendal!
    He-Man is now pretty well incidental to the DC canon overall - the focus is - and has been from the very outset - on the repulsive Teela.

    "Teela and the Mega-******* of the Universe." Now, THAT has a ring to it!

    Irving make art!

    My God! disrespect or contempt of some to great comic artists sometimes scares me.

    I think some do not understand it maybe because some have a traditional vision about comic art and this seems more Art Nouveau in a way .

    I mostly like the Irving cover. I almost always love his color palette and he has a very strong sense of design.

    But it also highlights his biggest flaw - he really has trouble drawing attractive people.

    HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #9 Frazer Irving cover
    Not sure I like the cover but I do find it intriguing.

    What is the significance of the giant Power Sword and the giant snake coiled around it? Is this giant snake, the snakemen’s god Serpos? Why does everyone appear to be walking down the back of the giant snake? Who is leading Teela & He-Man and is there a reason why they look so solemn or is it just because they are on a desperate quest into the underworld of Subternia?

    There are also two immediate people stood behind Moss Man with part of their faces visible. Does anyone have any idea who they are?


    DC UNIVERSE VS. THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #5 Bernard Chang cover
    Like the art.

    You really get the feeling Superman is struggling to break free of those fierce-looking Hordak-like dark magic entities or whatever they are.

    Didn't even realize the 2nd cover was by Bernard Chang. I love his art, but that looks phoned in.

    This exactly. I have tremendous respect for Irving overall. He's got a great sense of color. He did some amazing work with Iron Man. But his humans are very often sort of distorted or slightly grotesque. If the cover had focused on the villains I think it would have been awesome. But I'm not sure he's terribly suited to these heroic figures.

    Wow, not a fan at all of either, the DC is ok but there is no motu reprasentation, if DC comic yeah its cool but this in my view should have a tie in of motu and DC. As far as the motu comic, its pretty ordinary, im no artist just a fan and i dont like it, looks very boring, characters have no emotion so im now presumming they are under a spell, in a trance maybe, i just dont see he-man anywhere, take that H symbol away and the sword and the heading and someone showed me the comic id say not sure. Its not getting me excited at all to sit down and read it.

    I used to read Daimon Hellstrom :Prince of lies BUT I heard they canned that story after it only produced 12,000 issue sales by number 6 and that was like 2 decades ago maybe this dreadful tittle has very little legs to stand on which is still ok in my books because this book still needs a lot to be desired Oh well I'd rather keep my money in my pocket than spend it on this much longer.

    I'm sure like Hellstorm ( it's early Warren Ellis- and it's already good or was it Garth Ennis ) it will become my favorite read right before they can it...
