    New He-Man Comic? Actually, Just An Appearance In A Comic Strip!

    Since I'm probably one of the only people on this site who reads through the daily comic strips much less a newspaper, I thought I'd share this cute comic strip from yesterday's "Thatababy" by Paul Trap...

    How cute! Perhaps the creator of the strip is a fan?

    While it's a simplistic style found in most comic strips, I'd love to see the rest of the MOTU universe(that's kind of redundant, I know) drawn in this style. Maybe if Mattel ever gives us a new Masters Of The Universe comic, Paul Trap could draw a backup story or pin-up.

    I read Skeletor's line in his cartoon voice. Did anyone else?

    What? Mermista and Fluterrina aren't present?! I am writing the author! The hatred and discrimination of PoP MUST STOP! I, for one, have had it!



    Cool comic, though.

    I'm guessing yes. Especially since he remembered that the arms always fell of the old ones.... That's the kind of inside information that MADE that comic for me

    Yeah, I never had this problem either. All my figures' arms are so tight you basically need a crowbar to pry them off.

    It's either a new comic strip or they just added it recently to the Chicago Tribune since I've never seen it before. I'm going to keep an eye out for it from now on. Unfortunately I've found that the Trib only carries the Sunday strip but not Mon-Sat. The strip does have his own site and the creator is on Facebook in case anyone cares.

    He had to have been a fan at least one time in his life. He got He-Man's armor right with even the little red notches on it. Maybe he's a stickler for details and looked it up, but I'd like to think he knew that because he's a fan.

    I'm really happy this strip is getting a good reaction from the rest of you. I wasn't even sure about posting it last night since I figured it wouldn't receive one reply. I'm very happy that I was wrong.

    Good find!!!

    I'm really liking this strip. It's cute without making me nauseous and the creator obviously is or used to be into geeky things.
