[Solicitations] He-Man and Thundercats team in October

Fan of the Thundercats and He-Man and the Masters of the Universe are in for a treat this October when Mattel and DC Comics team to bring the two franchises together for the first time.

Writing the six-part crossover event will be Rob David (Mattel Head Writer and Masters of the Universe Lead Creative) and Lloyd Goldfine (Supervising Producer), along with artist Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles).

“The Masters of the Universe and the ThunderCats are both global phenomena, beloved by millions. Teaming them up for one enormous story will prove to be a publishing event that fans simply cannot miss. This is something that transcends both comic book and pop culture,” said DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras.

“For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you,” said co-writer Rob David, who recently wrote the storyline for the critically acclaimed He-Man: the Eternity War, published by DC Entertainment in 2015.

In his eternal desire to destroy the mighty ThunderCats, the evil Mumm-Ra quests for a weapon that can rival the legendary Sword of Omens: He-Man’s Sword of Power! But his dimension-spanning scheme launches a cataclysmic crisis that will, for the first time ever, unite Lion-O, Cheetara, Tygra, Panthro, WilyKit and WilyKat with He-Man, Battlecat, Teela, Man-At-Arms and the rest of the Masters of the Universe.

It sounds like a pretty big undertaking, but as Lloyd Goldfine said, “You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!”

The first issue of He-Man/Thundercats arrives on October 5, 2016.
