I’ve been meaning to write up my thoughts on the DC Comics MOTU miniseries, but in the meantime the series evidently did well enough to score an ongoing title. This news broke over two months ago, but I’m rather out of the MOTU loop…plus I haven’t enjoyed the new series much.
Anyway, the first issue ofÂ He-Man and the Masters of the UniverseÂ debuts April 17, written by Keith Giffen and drawn by Pop Mhan. Ed Benes does the main cover (above) and there will be a variant She-Ra cover by Terry and Rachel Dodson.
Assuming you can get past Teela’s ridiculous cleavage, you might notice that creepily sexy Hordak-looking thing. The press release says this is the “return” of She-ra, who is “now known as Despara, the most lethal weapon in Hordakâ€™s army.” So does this mean He-Man actually knew She-Ra in this universe, but then She-Ra left and somehow became Hordak’s slaveÂ again –Â or is this just the return of She-Ra toÂ comics and is actually a new origin story? I don’t know.
