    looking forward to future episodes!!! I too LOVED the MYP cartoon, MVC comic!!! I also enjoyed the 200X toyline very much, but could live without many of the crazy variants towards the end. It saddens me that all three aspects of the relaunch had been cut short, but it was still an amazing revival IMO.

    you do the coolest stuff
    Ask not for whom MOTUC is made, it's made for thee.

    If you have to disclaimer your like, then you don't really like it.

    Thank you guys very much for the feedback!

    I know everyone has their experiences about the 2002 relaunch and these videos will recollect my personal experiences of it.

    If you feel that I've missed some crucial piece of historical information, please let me know.

    Great video Jukka, I really enjoyed it.
    I'd love to see an english version of the MYP bible you mention, I believe it was posted on a german website in german but I never seen the english version posted.

    Great stuff, but your voice sounds muffled, even with the volume up. Any chance you can speak louder/ closer to the mic?

    Thanks for the feedback. I'll make the audio more clear next time.

    Thanks for this, Jukka - excellent stuff. It once again points out just how many light-years ahead the 2002 comics really were in terms of narrative and artistic merit. Particularly given the dubious qualities evinced by the new DC publications.

    I actually made this exact point in a post I made in another part of the forum this evening; so it's great to have my thoughts confirmed here! What I actually said, in terms of immediate relevance was this:

    Let me suggest as an antidote a re-read of the Shard of Darkness, from the 2002 Image Comics series. This elevated comics to the level of superb entertainment – and set very high standards – which these simply can’t match. And Val Staples draws on the whole rich and wide range of material to create dramatic storytelling that is intellectually as well as visually satisfying; a genuine tour de force – not least on account of Staples’ almost instinctive understanding of the material and capacity to expound it with style and eloquence. The Shard illustrates superbly the points I have attempted to make above; He-Man is set a test by the Sorceress – which he singularly fails – by falling for the tempting lure of supreme power inherent in the crystal; he is driven mad, attempts to kill, falls into a very real peril beyond merely his life – and – just note how he is saved in the end. Now, to me, this is The Comic as Art Form – it really is. And it sends this recent DC batch screaming back to the pit whence they came.

    If you disagree, then I would humbly solicit that you should go and re-read it (or better still the whole series) – and it is right here on the site in all its wonder and complexity. http://www.he-man.org/publishing/sub...id=52&subid=42 Staples and Santalucia was a very potent pairing indeed; it’s tragic that this did not continue – and left us to the mercy of these recent dismal offerings. O Tempora O Mores….


    And I really do believe it, too!

    Might we hope for more of these videos - time consuming for you as they undoubtedly are......?

    Just found this, was expecting something else, but this was awesome, very informative and funny with the kids not so happy and the horsemen Boromir image. And Eric from the four Horsemen is a giant? Cool!

    Well done Jukka. I also look forward to see more of these.
