POSITIVE REVIEW

The customer review said: “Just received this massive tome and I am blown away! The dust jacket is very attractive, but the artwork on the book cover itself is simply fantastic! Flipping through the pages reveals incredible artwork and the print quality and paper stock are excellent. I was never able to collect the individual comics collected in this book, which made this even more attractive to have them all together in one resource. There have been many versions and visions of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe through the years, and the artists and writers showcased here all bring their unique styles to this beloved franchise in vivid color. If you have previously read the comics collected in this book, this may be a fun way to have them all together for easy reference.”

THE FIGHT

In DC Universe vs The Masters Of The Universe (2013) #2, Skeletor and Black Alice come to Prime Earth to drain it of its mystical life-force. Skeletor attacks the Justice League satellite and using magic turns them into his “minions.”

The Justice League “minions” attack John Constantine, Batman, He-Man, Teela and company at the Batcave.

A battle to the death ensues between Superman and He-Man.

What a battle! It turns out the Superman He-Man killed was actually a facsimile. The real Superman, was being imprisoned on the extra-dimensional world of Trolla, by Orko.

In DC Universe vs The Masters Of The Universe (2014) #6, He-Man rescues Superman from Trolla. An all-out battle between Orko’s minions and The Masters Of The Universe and the DC Universe ensues.

“Cyborg (2015-2016) #9 (Cyborg (2015-))” Review

 

PRODUCT REVIEWS

Cyborg (2016) #9. DC Comics.

IN READING GUIDES, LISTS, REVIEWS

One of the turning points in Cyborg history. Gift this comic to your family and friends on the occasions of birthdays, graduations and science fairs. Available on Amazon.

Click on the Amazon product image below to buy the Kindle & Comixology comic.

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION


Federal forces are sent to capture Cyborg and his technology-but things take a bizarre twist when tensions rise among members of the Justice League, who are split over what Cyborg should do.

Shazam doesn’t understand why Cyborg won’t go along with the federal agents. Could this be the moment that ends their friendship?

Critically, ‘Cyborg’ (1991) #9, is one of the best Cyborg stories. With the passage of the Federal Cybernetic Regulation Act, the federal government intends to confiscate Cyborg and his alien technology. However, tensions rise between Shazam and Cyborg when the latter opposes the decision.

Together, writer David F. Walker and a team of artists collaborate on the story. Though optimistic, the writing shines on the relationships among the different characters. Nevertheless, the art in the book is characteristic of the New 52: big, bold, fun. Moreover, Shazam vs Cyborg!

Indeed, share this graphic novel to fans of Cyborg and for your children’s science fairs. Definitely, it is worth its price and will leave you wanting for more Cyborg! And Shazam!

Written by Will Pfeifer. Illustrated by Giuseppe Camuncoli. With last issue’s shocking revelation, it’s Captain Atom versus the Authority in a no-holds-barred battle! Nikola, whose manifestation of Void’s powers is nearly complete, enters the fray with Grifter in tow. But whose side is she on?

Critically, Captain Atom: Armageddon #8 begins one of the most catastrophic events in Wildstorm history. Summarily, the comic starts the chain reaction towards the destruction of the Wildstorm Universe.

Storywise, Will Pfeifer writes one of the most powerful moments in the series. Meanwhile, Giuseppe Camuncoli excels at revealing the brutality of the Authority. Don’t miss Grifter’s cameo! Moreover, Apollo vs Captain Atom to the death.

Critically, Captain Atom: Armageddon #8 showed why The Authority’s brutality doomed the Wildstorm Universe. In dictatorial style, the Authority is willing to do whatever it takes to end the threat of Captain Atom. However, it may already be too late. Indeed, their violence will cause Captain Atom to blow up the Wildstorm Universe in the last issue.

The comic is excellent for your collection. You will definitely love Camuncoli’s five panel layout and the emphasis on explosive action. This is the comic to own in order to build your single issue collection.

BEST: ‘DC COMICS PRESENTS’ (1982) #47.


























Rating: 5 out of 5.

‘DC Comics Presents’ was a series that featured Superman teaming-up with a different hero each issue. And oh boy, did they hit the ball in the park with this one! This issue is a kind of “What If” first team-up between Superman and He-Man.

We get our answers to what would happen if He-Man ever fought Superman. In their first encounter in DC history, Superman is brought from Earth to Eternia through a dimensional portal created by cosmic storm clouds. Skeletor is at one of his attacks at Castle Greyskull as he possesses half of the Power Sword! He-Man gets summoned by the Goddess and Superman travels to the strange world of Eternia.

This is a classic ’80s story with colors and pencils by Curt Swan. A more vintage art that favors bigger upper bodies and smaller legs. If you are a fan of the artist, this is classic Curt Swan. The fun, the action and the adventure belong in your ’80s He-Man collection.

This story is very reverent of both characters showing what makes each character work in the ’80s: He-Man, Man-At-Arms, Teela and the colorful cast of characters; the Superman/Clark Kent alter ego reminiscent of Christopher Reeve’s comedic tones. Both characters are true to themselves and form a formidable duo. Definitely a favorite story.

BEST: ‘MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE’ (1982).

Collects ‘Masters Of The Universe’ #1-3.


























Rating: 5 out of 5.

Paul Kupperberg and George Tuska’s three-issue series ‘Masters of The Universe’ may exemplify He-Man in the ’80s. At its best, He-Man deals with science fiction and fantasy themes comparable to Star Wars and Conan in the decade.

The world of ‘Masters of The Universe’ blends magic and science and figures the fantasy characters heading on a quest in order to save the Goddess. As matter of fact, ‘Masters of The Universe’ stands out because of the straight-forward natures of the quest. In some sense, what makes the comic work for the time period is the cartoony nature of the characters, which seem very well like one-dimensional characters: He-Man, Teela, Stratos and Man-At-Arms fight for good; whereas, Skeletor fights for Evil. The characters do not change.

The foci of the story are action and adventure. The adventure spans Eternia and the universe, from land, to sea, to space, to parallel dimensions. He-Man and co. fight snakes, dragons, demons, Beastmen, extra-dimensional creatures and even Skeletor. The action and the adventure are a thrill and are the parts that work the best in the comic. This is what He-Man is best at.

This is certainly a worthy addition to your He-Man and Masters of The Universe ’80s collection, with a blend of adventure, action, magic, and suspense.

GOOD: ‘HE-MAN AND THE POWER SWORD’ (1982).


























Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

“He-Man and The Power Sword” (1982) is the first of four Masters of The Universe miniature storybooks that accompanied the Mattel toyline. The storybook is clearly promotional material and serves as an introduction to He-Man and MoTU.

The storybook reads like a fairy tale. The water color art and the hyper-muscular lines of the characters creates the idea of legend and immortality. He-Man appears as a barbaric warrior who does not fear overwhelming foes and keeps fighting no matter the odds. The pacing is quick and focuses on the action, not the characterization. The plot is simple and straight-forward reminiscent of classic legends.

The storybook is aimed at children’s stories and works as a first introduction to the character.
