He-Man and the Masters of the Universe

So He-Man is stuck as Adam but Cringer is stuck as Battle Cat. I don’t get it.

He-Man & The Masters of the Universe #5

DC Comics (February, 2013)

“The Sword & The Sorceress”
WRITER: Keith Giffen
 PENCILERS: Pop Mhan & Philip Tan
INKER: Pop Mhan, Jim Charalampidis, and Lebeau Underwood
COLORIST: Lee Loughridge & Jim Charalampus
LETTERER: Saida Temofonte
EDITOR: Michael McCalister
COVER ART: Dave Wilkins

Adam finds a way to escape the cauldron (with Zoar’s help) and the path takes him into a confrontation with Battle Cat…and the Power Sword!

What they got right: Finally, the arrival of He-Man! And it only took five issues!

What they got wrong: Of a SIX issue mini-series. The placement of the Power Sword is also suspect, or rather it’s very convenient.

Recommendation: Final recommendation will depend on how this mini ends, but I am enjoying the telling at least. Worth a look.

Well it's about stinking time!

Well it’s about stinking time!

    The cover is one of the best ones of all the various MOTU comics I’ve seen. A fierce Battle Cat battling He-Man….the unexpected but a very powerful image. This story was outstanding in issue #5. Once again, Teela spends the whole issue in a bikini. This definitely isn’t the 1980s!
