We review He-man (Masters of the Universe) Volume 2

No Comment Yet

When we start this video, we basically say how much we don’t like this book…then as we talk more and more about it, we realized there is a lot of interesting things in this book that at least warrant thought and consideration.

At the end, I definitely can’t say we “liked” the book, but at least we won’t forget it.  And maybe thats enough, I don’t regret the purchase, and I’m looking forward to doing our next review of the He-man comics.

The Review

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, Vol. 2: Origins of Eternia

6.7 Score

"The untold origin stories of Eternia's most prominent heroes and villains are unveiled by the best writers and artists in the industry today. Joshua Hale Fialkov (GREEN LANTERN) and Keith Giffen (LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES) mold the world of the Masters of the Universe, with tales of the beginnings of classic characters He-Man, Skeletor, Hordak and more! This graphic novels also puts in print several digital-first chapters. "

Where to buy:

The Good
