DC have been teasing their He-Man fans over the past few days with a new redesign, all the while hiding their true purpose – this August will see a He-Man/DC Universe crossover miniseries from Keith Giffen and Dexter Soy, called DC Universe Vs Masters of The Universe.
This looks like the classical hero team-up storyline, which’ll start with Skeletor tumbling to the DC Universe. Once there he attempts an evil scheme – he is, after all, called Skeletor – which will bring both The Masters of the Universe and the regular DC heroes together to try and stop him. He-Man wants to stop Skeletor, the Justice League want to stop Skeletor, there’s a misunderstanding and they fight, but ultimately they band together to fight off the bad guy.
It’s classic stuff, and I quite like when a comic just gets down to business and gives people what it says in the title. It’ll also be really interesting to see how Giffen and Soy work together, in terms of storytelling and layouts. The first issue of six will be out at the end of August, with the above cover from Ed Benes.
I wonder where The Flash is. Probably fighting some more gorillas. That guy and gorilla-fighting, eh?
