    Little He-Man reference in the New York Times

    I figured I'd share this here, hopefully it's cool. In my day job, away from He-Man fandom, I write and draw a series of graphic novels about Greek mythology. Recently, the New York Times invited me to draw a comic paying homage to any book I particularly loved, and I decided to create a tribute to D'Aularies' Book of Greek Myths.

    The MOTU connection comes in when I talk about how I was primed as a youngster to love a book like D'Aulaires' and the role He-Man played in my love of monsters and musclemen. I even snuck in a drawing of He-Man himself, but note it's the savage so-called Wonder-Bread variant-- he was my personal He-Man growing up.

    I don't think this violates forum rules, and there's nothing political or inappropriate in it, so if you'd like you can click here to read my little tribute to He-Man and D'Aulaires'.
