DC Comics launching brand new Masters of the Universe Comic
Monday, April 9th, 2012 by Pixel Dan
MTV Geek broke the news, and has an interview with writer James Robinson. The book will be pencilled by Phillip Tan and inked by Ruy Jose.
This six-issue series looks to rewrite Eternian history, as Skeletor has seemingly found a way to alter reality and become the ruler of Castle Grayskull, while He-Man and the other Heroic Warriors have no memory of their previous lives!
The series will be taking the darker, more serious tone that was more prominent in the 200X era of MOTU. When speaking of Skeletor specifically, Robinson says:
“He’s terrifying. Period. The silly era is done and gone. Phillip and I are taking great pains to make Skeletor, who is after all a barbarian warrior with a skull face, into a horrifying and worthy foe for He-Man. As to motivation, much like before he wants it all. Eternia. Castle Grayskull. Adam’s head on a plate. Everything. He’s just going to be much more ruthless in how he goes about getting it.”
This new MOTU series from DC Comics hits comic stands in July, and I for one am very excited! How about the rest of you? Excited?
