    Oh what should've been?!?!?!

    While the writing technique of having the main character(s) not know what's going on and the reader watches as they try and figure it out, is an old one but it can be don well. Unfortunately here, its not. James Robinson has written some amazing things in the past and the idea of him delving into the MOTU-verse is exciting, this is a big speed bump. The story is all over the place with Prince Adam learning with the reader. Sadly, what's learned isn't that interesting or informative. Plus, a pet peeve, English literary quotes in a book that takes place on a different world. That's lazy. The art wasn't refined and lacked focus. Overall, a better idea than finished product.

    All the reasons the reviewer below disliked the new He-Man comic

    All the reasons the reviewer below disliked the new He-Man comics are the reasons I love it. I want a more grown up He-Man series because, well, I'm more grown up. If your looking for pure nostalgia you probably wouldn't like the new stuff, but I really enjoy the more complex plots, the more developed characters, and yes, the violence as well.

    I don't have much to say about this disaster called a comic book

    I don't have much to say about this disaster called a comic book. It isn't He-Man, or at least, it isn't the He-Man I knew. I had picked up the comic because I thought to myself, “It's He-Man, it has to be cool.” Boy was I ever <i>wrong</i>
    .

    This is as far from He-Man as anything could be. In the first volume of this ongoing series, it looks like they decided to mix He-Man in with <i>Game of Thrones</i>
    . This is a horrible fit. Look, I think that having some blood and other more serious fighting is fine. I don't mind <i>all</i>
    of the stuff that they changed, but this is not a bloody, gory franchise. It was never intended to be.

    Between Sorcoress being brutally bloodied and killed (and worse), Orko being a villain, Teela being an immature brat that is around more for fanservice (very scantily clad fanservice at that) than anything else, among other bad parts, this is a disaster that I can't bear to finish. Oh, and the future volume will have She-Ra introduced as Hordak's adopted daughter, like in the original series, but with a twist. You see, she is not just more violent in this medium, she makes Xena in her bad days look cuddly and adorable. Wonderful job <i>DC</i>
    .

    I know that many folks roll their eyes when they hear others complain how something has been ruined, but for me it has. Maybe others like to read this darker and edgier crap without the hope and idealism it had before, but not me.

    I recommend never reading this book. I only gave it one star because I had to give it something. It is trash and doesn't deserve any stars at all. <i>DC</i>
    has horribly hurt this franchise, and destroyed some of my best memories. Disgusting.
