DC Launching New ‘Masters of The Universe’ Monthly Series In April

After testing the waters with digital releases, one-shots and a mini-series, DC Entertainment has announced that it’s ready to move to Eternia full-time starting in Spring, as Keith Giffen and Pop Mhan use the Power of Grayskull to launch an all-new Masters of The Universe monthly series.The new series follows on from a series of digital comics featuring the work of such creators as Geoff Johns, Kyle Higgins, Mike Costa and Jeff Parker that DC has been releasing since June last year, as well as a print mini by James Robinson, Giffen and Philip Tan that launched in July. This new series could even be considered a homecoming of sorts for He-Man and friends with the publisher, considering that the Mattel characters’ first comic book appearances (outside of the mini-comics packaged with the action figures themselves) came in 1982’s DC Comics Presents #47, in a story that teamed He-Man and Superman against Skeletor, memorably titled “From Eternia — With Death!”

The first issue of Giffen and Mhan’s series appears devoid of Superman cameos, sadly, although MTV Geek’s report does promise that it will see the return of She-Ra. Admittedly, it’s a She-Ra who appears to have switched sides and gained a new name — Despera — in the process, which I’m not so onboard with. Sounds like someone isn’t worthy of the Sword of Protection just yet…

Masters of The Universe #1 is released this April.
