    Finally got to read it and I have to say I really liked it. The narration was a little too much but the story itself was great. Adam basically created the modern system, we got an explanation of why the He Men are so secretive of their identities, King Grayskull was FatherOfTheYear and Skeletor is plotting...something (I don't know enough lore to understand what was going on in that page). This adventure also seems like it will have impact in Revelation. Unless Adam achieves something as himself, his reputation is going to plunder. Maybe that's why Randor was so angry at him in that leaked scene.

    That's fantastic! I've always loved this painting, but the print was too pricey for my taste when it was released. I'm excited to get it somehow.

I wasn’t impressed at all and it gives me reservations about the whole upcoming comic. It doesn’t at all feel like a follow up from the filmation story at all.
    Wholeheartedly agreed, unfortunately. Such a disappointment so far on so many levels...

Scareglow is the “devil” quite an upgrade, I would expect if they are so lazy to wipe away continuity they could come out with something better than this...

    Doesn’t bode well for the writing on the show.

    Really looking forward to the Evil-Lyn origin comic so we can learn her real story, probably as good as the power-sword.

    What a disappointment.
    Exactly my thoughts.

The whole creation of the power-sword and He-Ro... sad. I expect when you are coming out with a first issue and presenting new ideas you could at least tell a decent story. It’s so half-assed. And the Orlax? You have to be kidding me. It’s pink idiocy. Mindy Lee is so freaking lazy with this art it’s embarrassing, it’s like she’s never been taught how to do sequential art. Seriously if you told me kids put this together as a fan-story I’d say it needs some work. Shockingly bad.
    Quoted for truth.

    Bad writing.
    Lazy, garbage art.

    I long for the days of 200X, when Val penned great stories and Emiliano brought the best art that MOTU had ever (or apparently WILL ever) see.

    20 years later and the only things that we’ve gotten that we’re tolerable were the Thundercats & DC crossovers.

    Sad.

    Sorry man, I thought it wasn’t good. I thought it was actually worse than that, but there’s no point going on & on about my dislikes.

    I don't think I'd say all that, even if by playing it a little safer they probably would have gotten a less salty online reaction, sure.

    But that picture right there more or less reinforces my position that if Teela isn't the new Sorceress by Episode 10 of "Revelation", I'll eat a wicker basket.

    It seems they will go back the skeletor's minicomics origin,and will deepen it.

    Fascinating - so they're ignoring the whole Keldor angle? That seemed to have been the default origin for Skeletor ever since 200x (or even that vintage mini comic).
