DC’s New ‘He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe’ Comics Are Secretly Awesome

hemmu314

When the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series found its way to Netflix Instant not too long ago, I thought it would make perfect background noise for my work day; some nostalgic entertainment to help pass the time while working on the site. But as an adult, what I discovered in that early 1980s cartoon based on an action figure line was far more distracting and indeed more sophisticated than I ever realized as a little boy. While the animation itself is crude (and famously recyclable), the show expresses a palpable sense of otherworldly adventure and intrigue through its writing but even more so through it's surprisingly awesome art direction. I thought, this medieval-techno world of Eternia and its heroes, villains, magics and prophecies could really be great if someone wanted to really dig into it.

Let's see... the series tells the story of Jack Frost, Santa Claus, the Sandman and... no, I'm getting another note here, hang on... A talking raccoon and a tree? That can't be right.

"ALL A LITTLE MAD" WOULD BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT: Joker's Asylum II Harley Quinn & Joker's Asylum II Mad Hatter

Sane people are dull. Sure, they're necessary. When you buy a coffee in the morning it's unsettling to have it served to you by someone whose left eye twitches, grins madly, cackles while using the coffee grinder and mumbles, "Oh yes, you'll pay," before turning to the rest of the line behind you and yelling "You'll all pay!" At tax time it's preferable to find an accountant who refrains from attempting to claim the invisible talking giant spider who he assures you lives in your house as an additional dependent. Indeed, most aspects of o
