Radar Games states that Smith takes it a step further by releasing a four-issue prequel comic to Black Horse with co-authors Rob David and Tim Sheridan. David is a former creative director and writer on DC’s Master of the universe comics, and Sheridan is a series writer and has also worked in the comic book industry.
Now that Masters of the Universe is over Dark Horse, DC no longer has the rights. Former DC writer Tim Seeley confirms this in his tweets.
The comic begins after an Orlax attack on the king, He-Man learns that the creature and the sword of power are connected. To save the king, He-Man must face off against Skeletor and Evil-Lyn to end their reign of chaos in the kingdom. This prequel is a continuation of the 1980s animated series.
I was obsessed with the He-man animated show growing up. and the Masters of the Universe the 1987 film is one of my guilty pleasures. Kevin Smith is a great storyteller so let’s hope his take on He-Man turns out to be entertaining.
What do you think of the complete cover for Masters of the universe: revelation?
