I'm not 100% on the tusks, but I like it. It's different than we're used to, but still recognizable as Skeletor. You don't like the book as DC does it, don't buy it. Vote with your wallet. Whining about it does nothing. I personally like what's going on in the new series, and look forward to this upcoming crossover. It's serialized fiction. It's not like this is going to replace the iconic look forever. The MOTU fandom now, IMHO, resembles the Transformer fandom in the Beast Wars era - a bunch of complainers who think everyone is entitled to their vision of how the franchise should be and any deviation is not allowed. Different strokes, folks.
From needing 13 figures to HAVING 13 figures sucks.
Anyone got anything for sale cheap?
Like your comics monster flavored?

My Feedback thread!!
I'm a bit late with this, but I have to say that issue #5 is the second issue in a row that I've actually enjoyed. I hope this trend continues.
Despara's origin is VASTLY different than what I have planned for my next book, but that's OK. DC's version was pretty cool, just different. I enjoyed it.
Unlike most of you, I like the new design somehow as a "temporary battle armor" of some kind. I don't prefer it over the classic Skeletor look by any means, but it still has fantasy-esque elements a lot more than He-Man's new armor...
Epic Metal music rocks the universe.
While I was out today it dawned on me that the helm with the tusks could be a way of incorporating the havoc staff into his costume since he isn't holding it. I still don't like it, and I don't want to give them that much credit. Haha
But, basically it has done to He-Man as what the 1960's Adam West Batman TV show did to Batman, neither one intentional. Remember 'I Love The 80's' on VH1 a number of years ago where anything to do with He-Man was just wall to wall jokes? That is what MOTU is thought of by non-fans and probably the mainstream entertainment industry. Could be a reason why a new live action movie still cannot get off of the ground.
The comic is doing what a movie should've done with the characters. Treating the characters with a seriousness that has been needed with MOTU for awhile.
BY THE POWER OF GREYSTONE! I am the power.
When does the first crossover issue come out
2 different covers?...variants again? Oh, I love being a completist.

I know it’s not everyone's cup of tea, but I actually really like the art style in the issue. Loving Stratos' helmet, too. I think it just adds to his overall look.
I really hope Skeletor’s new look is only for this story arc, though. I can’t believe Mattel signed off on that. I’m actually the type of fan who welcomes change, both in story and visuals, but I just think that suit is horrendous.
Man DC's MOTU is really getting better and better. I look forward each month with excitement that I have felt in a long time waiting for these comics to come out. It's like Christmas time every single month. Good times!
Well after seeing some preview pages it looks like this crossover takes place after the Despara arc timeline-wise. The Horde still rule Eternia and Adora is mentioned by Teela as being Adam's sister.
That does look pretty good, I like He-Man's new costume in these panels and I dig Stratos' new look - the helmet is very Zodac-esque.
WISHLISTKarg ~ Crita ~ Despara ~ Fang-Or ~ Kittrina ~ Darius ~ Sorceress of Serpos Teela ~ Lodar ~ Hunga The Harpy Great Black Wizard ~ Staghorn ~ Lady Slither ~ Artilla ~ Ra-Jarr ~ Major Header ~ Vultak ~
Crimson Fury ~ Kex Queen ~ Hawke ~ Red Beast ~ Angast ~ Delora ~ Quakke ~ Lord Masque ~ Zilora ~ Three-Beast Robowoman ~ DC He-Man ~ DC She-Ra ~ DC Stratos
Everything looks great from an art standpoint. Still hate that He-Man wears a shirt, but my GOD can Teela please die in a Wind Raider accident. Why does every writer make her such an exaggeration? She is waaaay annoying and a royal *****.
Thanks to the preview i can proudly say "i save money!" I wouldn't even want those books as a gift or if i get paid to read them, the number should be very high then... Hate the dialogue!
FAN MADE COMIC, check this out:
Open for commissions
I'm not sure if I understand this preview. Are there people trapped inside most of the Troopers? Are the Masters killing most of them without caring who's inside?
He-man looks like Adam in armour rather than He-man. I too hate the dialogue. In the first few pages we already have Teela sexualised. Complaining about the Horde perv looking at her bum. Not that she seemed to mind who saw her bum in earlier issues where she strips off in front of her father and anyone else who happens by. Oh well any excuse for her to kill anything she takes a disliking to.
What I was saying is I Like Skeletor being physically taller than He-Man and just a little bit bigger I feel magic as well as size and power make Skeletor a double threat andmakes He-Man a underdog.I want DC to tell better stories as well as tie in characters personalities in better.
