Publisher’s Summary: The scourge of Anti-Eternia is unleashed on the Multiverse! Blazing a trail across the dimensions, he’s devastating each version of Eternia and stealing its power. Now it’s up to a ragtag team of surviving He-Men to recruit the one man in existence who might save them: Prince Keldor, the man who would be Skeletor! This all-new miniseries features the most iconic eras and beloved takes on the Masters of the Universe!


Review

Anti-He-Man seeks to become a Dark God of a singular Antiverse. Thus far, he’s taken his show on the road and has started defeating versions of himself–versions of He-Man–from other universes, as doing so, grants him additional power. Thankfully, surviving He-Men have solicited the help of Prince Keldor (Skeletor) to take down the singular figure that threatens the Multiverse.

He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse (2019-) #1 is well-paced and, although there is a good deal of setup, never feels weighed down or too dense to enjoy. Tim Seeley’s script provides He-Man fans, new and old, good reason to be excited, as this series offers readers a fresh look at the He-Man/Skeletor relationship. Sure, the plot of this series feels a lot like that Jet Li movie, The One, but it works well nonethelessI’m looking forward to seeing Skeletor get to play hero as much as I am looking forward to meeting additional ‘He-Men.’ from 

Bottom Line

This is the He-Man story that I’ve been waiting for; He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse is fresh and exciting, and its debut is an impressive one. I highly recommend He-Man & the Masters of the Multiverse #1 to He-Man fans.

The Worst Dudes #1 Review

The Worst Dude is funny, irreverent, and profane as well as delightfully packed with swashbuckling adventure. Definitely worth a look.

Jupiter’s Legacy Is Not Watchmen and That’s Okay: Netflix Original Series Review

Jupiter’s Legacy hits incredibly hard while offering viewers a well-crafted blend of caped-crusading-escapism and social commentary; this combination makes for a grounded viewing experience that’s as exciting as it is though-provoking. Jupiter’s Legacy is a must-watch series.

Eve #1 Review

Eve is more than just a typical “save the planet” story. It is more about a little girl’s courage and a love that endures even in simulation. Armed with the fake bear and a dinghy, her adventure starts.
