DC Comics is announcing a crossover between Masters Of The Universe and Thundercats. Unlike the recent Voltron/Robotech team-up this actually makes some sense. However, considering how dark the DC MOTU comics are and how DC’s last crossover went (remember?) I’m lacking the enthusiasm of this one most other 80s kids will.

A would be comic writer looking to organize his living space as well as his thoughts. So I have a blog for each goal. :)

    Thanks for this information! I’ve marked my calendar for Oct. 5th when this issue comes out. I look forward to it. I think it’s worth giving a shot. On the other hand, I’ve decided not to get the new Voltron comic, because I haven’t seen the new show that it’s based on. It could be neat to see the Thundercats and Masters of the Universe worlds teamed up. It makes more sense than the teaming up of Thundercats and Superman! I did read your review of that. What do you mean that Wildstorm Comics made Cheetara “a rape toy” of the Mutants? Were the Thundercats comic books from the 2000s a darker version when compared with the 1980s Star comics Thundercats?

    • I’ll be getting to that as soon as I get back to comic reviewing. It’s really disappointing because the writer showed he knew the show. Thundercats: The Return just has a lot of issues to work out.

        I’ve never read any of the Thundercats comic books from Wildstorm. But based on what you say, it sounds like it wasn’t quite like the Star comics series. I’m actually very curious about the Marvel UK version of Thundercats…those comic books went for 129 issues. From what I’ve seen on Google images on the covers of those British comics, it looks pretty good. It also appears they adapted some more of the cartoon episodes than Star did. I’ll have to read your reviews to decide whether I want to try to get Wildstorm back issues of Thundercats. I doubt that I’d be able to find Marvel UK Thundercats back issues in America. More likely in Canada but not in the USA.
