    Whoa! Read that preview w/o having reas the first two issues. The story sounds fun and the art looks great. Why can't the same love fall on the real MOTU series?

    Well I am sure those of us who are still teenagers will love this bad girl 90's styled cover.
    Man, even Teela's gun and outfit looks like something from Cyberforce or Youngblood....comic from 20 years ago.

    Forgetting just for a moment the utter ridiculousness of a Wonder Woman vs. Teela fight.

    I think the only DC vrs MOTU thing I ever imagined (though never really wanted) was Wonder Woman vrs She-Ra.

    I will not be buying this comic.

    HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE #12
    Written by DAN ABNETT
    Art by MICHAEL O’HARE
    Cover by RYAN SOOK
    On sale MARCH 19 • 32 pg, FC, $2.99 US
    The dramatic conclusion to “What Lies Within.” With He-Man captured, it’s up to Teela and the rest of their allies to try to overcome their enemy and his overwhelming forces. But what price will come with victory? One hero has already been tragically lost and one will be transformed forever. A major chapter in the history of the Masters of the Universe concludes, as another is about to begin.

    If anyone was wondering… I am very VERY happy with this…

    I'd be happier if she were covered more of course, being the prude that I am… But LOVE that she's back in the comics!

    I'm happy to see her as well. That gif was a look of shock/excitement, not disgust btw.

    This is what I love about covers and solicitations. Previously the solicits were like "Moss Man dies!". Now he is on the latest cover all well. Yet solicit still says "one hero has already been tragically lost" so while it could mean it wasn't Moss Man, it just as well may not prove anything at all.

    But love seeing The Goddess on the cover! (Or the Sorceress as she originally was called, especially when referring to the green-skinned one)

    So she will be Serpos/Zoar/Living Force/Star Seed...

    What if she's the patron goddess of the Snake Men? Like that old idea from RGD?

    Or what if the Sorceress is now the Green Goddess?

    My wondering goes something like this. Spoilers ahead if you've not been reading the comic...

     
    By issue 12, will they have gotten the Sorceress back? What I'm loving is that Goddess or Sorceress here as Jukka is correct to say, is yet again a pre cursor to the main Sorceress! Only in this case as it appears on the cover, she's a force to be reckoned with, no more a "damsel in distress". She's very Diety looking here witch is also very appropriate IMO.


    Exciting stuff!

    I haven't been reading it. Waiting for trade paperback. The art is horrible and most of you say the story is too so I'm not gonna waste the money on gas to drive to a shop every month for it.

    and one will be transformed forever.
    Could that mean they're going to make Teela the new Sorceress?

    The art gets better with issue #9. They are changing artists in mid-story.

    That "Green Goddess" is hands down the best DC "redesign" I've seen... this cover also boasts the best interpretation of this new He-Man that I've seen as well. His face, hair, and sword are PERFECT... LOL!

    If they can get someone awesome like Ryan Sook to make that cover, why must they have such a revolving door of interior artists?! I sometimes wonder why I'm even bothering with this, DC has proven how little they care about this comic how they can't seem to keep any writer for more the 3 issues, it feels like the comic book equivalent of what CN did the MYP cartoon . I will say the current one is good,Dan Abnett wrote a relly good sci-fi team book called the Hypernaturals for Boom! But just give Axel artist duties, he deserves it, and Val the coloring job Also I'll ask again, did anyone here give Amethyst a chance? It was the closest thing to She-Ra DC had going and they pull the plug in less then 10 issues you see why I hate em lately, Aaron would also make a great artist for MOTU seeing his style here: http://aaronlopresti.deviantart.com/...over-368836814

    Also, what's up with Moss Man's look!? Remember when Eamon went into a rant about Bow's golden armor? Well it makes even LESS sense for a guy made of magical plant matter to be wearing strips of gold if you ask me.
    Visit my art page at: http://theblock.deviantart.com/ , if you like my work and have an account there to, feel free to fave or watch me, I could use the street cred !

    Nice cover, I see the Goddess more of a good snakeclan entity for warriors like Zilora... A power of its own, befriended with the Sorceress and arch-enemy of Shokoti... Hot chicks all around

    Just jumped onboard with the last issue. Loved it. I've loved everything I've ever read by Dan Abnett. Looking forward to a new artist though. And now I need a He-man figure in his comic armor!

    Interesting look for the Goddess. Really nice to see her pop up. Though with regards to the speculation as to whether she may be or own entity or the Sorceress reborn. I kinda wonder if maybe she's a possessed Teela. Though maybe that's just me thinking of the Snakehead helmet. Can't wait to see this issue when it finally hits.

    You'll never get an answer, bc Matty says it's DC-driven & the DC people say it's Matty directed.

    Everyone knows it's a stinker, so nobody is taking credit.

    After Google search I was all like Could it be, a SINGLE DC comic without ANY suck? Wow, miracles really do happen.

    Sorceress yes, The Goddess eh...I kinda feel like a little Eve imagery isn't inappropriate for a cosmic deity. Doc Manhattan, is so beyond "human" stuff that clothing and a sense of shame seam childish or nonsensical. Think to Genesis, If Adam and Eve are nude and God is walking on the earth wouldn't that mean God is nude as well? (assuming a literal translation)

    that or DC are perverts looking to make a few bucks of an implied nip slip But yeah, I get your meaning. I could do without all the TnA as well.

    So she will be Serpos/Zoar/Living Force/Star Seed...

    I love DC52 Zoar...The emblem, the new sword Zoar being the "font of magic" and ties to the Star Seed...That cycle of renewal and rebirth...I'm wondering if Teela is sacrificed to begin a new cycle and this is DC's Teela/Sorceress 2.0? The Goddess of Grayskull!

    Have we had reference to the Snakemen yet?
    Perhaps they get unleashed to fight the Horde after issue 12?

    I just finished reading the ongoing series issue #8 and the last 2 DC issues (#2&3). Man...I thought the story was improving, but it's gotten worse again. Giffen said they were going to stay away from team-up cliches as much as possible, but he's doing a darn good job at nailing each and every single one. BADLY, I might ad. No one will listen to Batman or reason, everyone wants blood and refuses to even think for a second. Bleh.

    The big baddie reveal is vomit inducing, too.

    The ongoing series is faring a bit better, but the dialogue is so hard to read. It doesn't flow well and is super awkward. A good example is how they keep calling Moss Man by his ridiculous "real name" given to him in the bios, sentence after sentence.

    The thing that upset me most about issue #8 though (besides the "art"), has to go into the spoiler section:

     
    I really do not like that the Green Goddess is Serpos, the Star Seed, Zoar and pretty much everything else...and created the Power Sword, Eternia and the Universe itself. These are all separate things. She can't BE all of them...unless she's some type of shape-shifting deity. It's just making everything unnecessarily convoluted, and making all the other things irrelevant.


    I LOVE that the Green Goddess is coming back though, and I think she looks amazing. Is she showing a lot of skin? Yes, but she's a Goddess.

    She reminds me of Shiva from Final Fantasy VIII.



    Also, WHERE IS DESPERA?! She's one of the only good things about the new comic series and we last saw her in issue 6. We've had TWO issues without her. FIVE if you count the MOTU vs DC comics. I don't think I will be renewing my subscription for next year. Reading these comics (and paying for them) feels like some sort of cruel and unusual punishment. I'm going to keep my sub until the very end though, because I signed up and I honour my commitments. If it gets better, I may re-sub...but right now...it's not looking so good. Bring back Despera! Make a She-Ra comic! Improve the art! My God, the last few issues can only be called chicken scratch! Storyboard art looks better than whatever the heck that was...
