    Such a great issue, really miss 200X He-Man so it was awesome to to this universe return.
    Really happy to see snake armor He-Man as I love that design.
    It's disappointing that She-Ra has been left out of this multiverse story.

    I have really been loving this series. The little animated he-man, while off putting due to the drastic dif look, grew on me.

    They have a real love for the dif histories and shows.

    Why? This way there's no risk of her getting stabbed to death by Anti He-Man for sake of being edgy...
    Brings doom to MOTUC with cel accuracy.

    She could still get a quick mention/cameo but there is way too much going on with multiverse He-Men and Keldor in this 6 issue miniseries for her (and her potential multiples) to have any room to breathe. She got her time to shine in the Ongoing MOTU 2013 and Eternity War comic series.

    MOTU is one of the few comics I read anymore- definitely the only current monthly- and I support it with my money and don't want them to stop.

    This was the best issue so far, although it suffers from the same problems which plague MOTU/DC and modern comics in general. As many of you have noticed, the panel layout is confusing. So the art can be fantastic, detailed, and beautiful but can still lack easy-to-follow layout conducive to storytelling. It's the same criticism of Michael Bay films or indie highspots in pro wrestling.

    MOTU's mini-series had already reached its "cosmic threat peak" a few series (and years) ago, so Anti He-Man seems to forced in that role. We've "been there, done that". So the story doesn't feel original (again, it's DC's Kingdom Come and every other MOTU series), and feels rushed and compressed. No time to breath. No real intros or time to rest. Lots of the same tropes as before: shock deaths, "edgy" violence, unstoppable villains, alliances shifting, buffed up Power Sword, battle royals, the trend to phase out Adam, etc. AH-M's confrontation with the Zodacs was similar to Marvel's Cosmic Entities confronting The Beyonder in Secret Wars II.

    Skeletor and Tapper He-Man stole the show. I was happy to see different characters. I enjoyed the comic and look forward to next month's. I feel the writers are having fun with this. It's like using your imagination while playing with toys. It's more fan fiction that I feel appropriate, however. But MOTU has to do this to maximize its sales. DC probably thinks anthologies, slower placed long-term storytelling, and character pieces would not sell as much. Well, I don't defend commercialism ruining a story, so this is where I am coming from. Perhaps I have expectations too high for MOTU being a serious sci-fi/fantasy genre!

    Again, I actually recommend this series and all of MOTU/DC series.
