    Because I'm all about timeliness, here's a review more than a year and a half later:

    Got my answer in a William Stout podcast interview: Mattel wanted to own the art if it was gonna be in the book... But thankfully Stout is planning a book of his own on his whole career.

    Does anyone have the Limited edition Art book that comes with the Gerald Parel print? I've ordered one but was hoping someone could tell me who's standing to She-Ra's right? Is it Scareglow? Thanks.

    It is Battle Cat Man.

    For those who can recall, and if memory serves, didn't an earlier version of this print feature King Randor in his place?

    Never heard anything about an earlier version?

    Someone did make a fan-edit of the pic afterwards where they replaced Battle Cat Man with another character.

    Thanks for bringing this up. I guess I never really looked too closely at this artwork. Why would all these people be gathering? Who created it and decided a Battle Cat Man would be a good fit with all the leaders of Eternia? Also, I just noticed She-Ra is holding her Despara mask, so it must be somewhat based on the DC comic versions.

    I believe it was shown when BBTS initially put up the Limited Edition for Pre-Order, but then it was taken down and when it went up again, BCM was in Randor's place.

    I *think* I may have a screenshot of it on my old phone, but I'm not 100% sure.

    It's a mixed variety of canons and eras collected in one. It was created by Mattel and art by Gerald Parel.
    You'll notice there's classic Sorceress and then New DC Sorceress (of Serpos) Teela. Those two didn't exist at same time so its not based on DC Comics per say.

    I have a couple questions, in this book, page 224, 225, and 226 as well as 227. There are some great looking characters created by Horsemen studios that never saw the light. Other then this artwork is there any more to them. Names, anything else at all.

    Accordingly they talked some of them during Power-Con in their Panel. Hoping that the video of it will go online soon...

    Not all have names necessarily though.

    They said the fat evil warrior was to be named Blubbor. Great name! I wonder if he'd be confused with Bubblor a lot though, at least on paper since the names are so close. I'd figured his name would be something like Obesus since the 200x names often ended in a '-us' sound (eg, Vormus, Dactys, Prahvus, Carnivus, Ceratus, Torius, and Aquarus). No name was suggeted for the little skull-imp guy (Skullkor?) or the Scorpion guy (who resembles Kragox from Filmation's Game Master episode), and unfortunately they ran out of time and didn't get to the red pteradactyl creature or the second alien zodac redesign (with the green armor).

    @JVS3 and the He-Man.org team...
    I just picked up the He-Man Mini Comic collection on Comixology. You guys have done a great job with it. Additionally, you've done an amazing job keeping He-Man alive all these years. It was awesome to see all your names in the credits of the collections. Well done.

    Glad to hear it. The Minicomic Collection is one of many books fans seemed to have enjoyed. I keep mine next to my work-desk for easy reading and at times research.

    I hope it's not a big problem to dig up a thread like this after a year has passed. But I just today received my copy of this AMAZING book and I just wanted to say out loud how great it is.

    I plan to do a more in-depth reading of it once I'm finished with the Omnibus - I'm up to the original 1980s three-issue mini-series at the end - but I just had to flip through it as soon as I took it out of the box, and all I can say is WOW, what a fantastic resource. There's so much I'd never seen before - particularly the concept art stuff - but apart from that just having all the different and varying art styles from the entire history of the brand in one place, being able to look at and compare/contrast all of it and seeing the evolution of styles... it's incredible.

    And of course, SO much Earl Norem artwork. Seriously, whenever someone who "doesn't get it" asks me "What's the big deal about He-Man, anyway?", I float 'em some Norem artwork and the rest takes care of itself. Plenty of other greats in this book, obviously, but the Norem stuff is just breathtaking. That's the stuff that made me fall in love with the brand, right there. Alex Ross Before Alex Ross. I love it.

    A huge, sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who had a hand in putting this book together. It's an incredible piece of work.

    I still need to pick up the Character Guide, Toy Guide, and Supplemental Guide soon. I'm hoping to order the Toy Guide and Supplemental book through the con website soon but I'm waiting on a check before I jump on that. These MOTU hardcovers are incredible.

    Also... I can't be the only one crushing on Evil-Lyn from the back cover, can I?

    Welcome to the forums, and yes, The Art of HMatMOTU is an excellent book. I wholeheartedly recommend all the Dark Horse books (Character Guide, Minicomics Collection, He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures, and the Newspaper Strip Collection.)

    Just a heads up, He-Man and She-Ra: A Complete Guide to the Classic Animated Adventures is available now on Amazon for $44, which is about 1/3rd of what it usually sells for on the used market. (It's been out of print for a while now and goes for big bucks on the secondary market.)

    I'm eagerly awaiting the Toy Guide and Supplemental Character Guide as well. Pixel Dan and Val Staples together like Starsky and Hutch? Shut up and take my money!

    You mentioned getting them from the Power Con website. You probably already know this, but for anyone coming across the thread unaware, the only way to get the Supplementary Character Guide is by ordering it together with the Toy Guide through the He-Mart site. The Toy Guide will be available worldwide wherever fine He-Man books are sold, but the Character Guide Supplement will not be.
    Most wanted Origins figures: Mighty Spector, Fisto's Cousin's Babysitter, and Mer-Man's Seventh Grade Crush.

    Thanks champ, happy to be here!

    And yeah, that's what I meant, I have the link to order it/them from He-Mart saved but as I said I'm waiting on a check, given the price tag + shipping. I think it's totally worth it, though. And I want to see the guys get paid for all their hard work so I'm happy to do what little I can towards that. Producing such quality resources for us fans obviously takes a lot of passion and hard work, after all.

    Thanks so much for the hot tip! I immediately went and bought the Animated Series hardcover from Amazon just this minute. Can't beat that price! I was kind of on the fence about that one given its usual asking price but thanks to your tip it's gonna be the next addition to the collection!

    I think all I'm missing now is the Character Guide and the upcoming Toy Guide and Supplemental Character Guide. My wife got me the Mini-Comics Collection for our anniversary last year, and I picked up the Newspaper Strips hardcover a couple of weeks ago when I found out about it. I'd never seen them before so I had a real strong sense of urgency to grab that one. From there I found out about the DC Omnibus, which led me to the others, and now here we are.

    I know it's been oft-discussed, but man, a hardcover of the MYP-era comics and one for the Marvel stuff would just be terrific, for the sake of "completion". Who knows if we'll ever get those, but I guess a guy can dream.

    Anyways, these are some slick pieces of work. It amazes me that stuff like this even exists.
