A profoundly moving meditation on grief, sacrifice, and the meaning of family in the context of a multigenerational immigration saga.

I’m kidding. It’s a f#@&ing He-Man and She-Ra comic. They punch bad guys. There’s magic. Skeletor shows up. The world is in peril. And there’s some existential angst.

Worth a read if you’re jonesing for some old school hack and slashery gussied up with some philosophical trappings and meta multiverse pictures of Skeletor.

What is it about nostalgia that makes folks pick up old pieces of work that should really be left alone? Not everything that we've enjoyed in the past, when our minds is not as grizzled or matured or tempered with experience the way it is now, is really as good as it was the first time we encountered it. This should be a universally known fact. However what is also universally true is people cannot resist the call at another go for that lost feeling of wonder. Corporate marketing is one of the f ...more

I have missed several volumes of the DC MOTU series so I am a tiny bit lost as to what has happened leading up to this volume but it still is worth the read.

I have issues with it (the eyes of Grayskull seems like a needlessly convoluted addition to the power/mystery of Grayskull in my opinion) but overall it was a fun read.

I am kind of surprised that Mattel is allowing such a violent/dark MOTU story. I know there were a lot of limitations of what could be written in the MOTU universe around the

How to make a five year old cool. Buy a load of He-Man DVD's his Dad used to enjoy then let him watch them (whilst you let the inner child out by watching the action figures on ebay...)

I read the individual comics in this series rather than the paperback.

It took me a while to get used to the look and feel of this book, I guess the 'Mattell' imagery is a little ingrained in me. However the colourful world of Eternia is on every page. Although this Eternia is much darker in tone the world is recog

Well this was not what I expected at all, it certainly was not the He-Man of my childhood when I watched the cartoons. But...that was not a bad thing in this instance! The story and action is a lot darker than anything I remember, but the story is incredibly interesting and I think the relationships depicted are definitely complex. The art work is absolutely stunning and I love the design of both He-Man and She-Ra and Swift Wind is absolutely stunning! Overall a surprising but good read and I wi ...more

Those four stars are incredibly deceiving.

This series starts out strong. I enjoyed the first issue, and absolutely *loved* the second issue. It was the only issue since this DC relaunch in 2013 where it actually felt like the author or artist remembered what it was like to actually play with these characters back in the day.

I love the art, and I own almost every other He-Man printed comic... so I stick with this title. The four star rating here mostly represents how much I enjoyed the first two

This a much darker He-Man than the cartoon of my childhood. I like it. While it is volume 1 it starts in the middle of a story line. He-Man, She-Ra and crew are in loosing a war. They have there there forces in Skeletor's castle. Hodrak has Grayskull. Skeletor is missing. Then the violence and bloodshed begins. Good times.

As a fan of He-Man as a kid this collection of the first 6 comics in the He-Man:Eternity Wars series brought a smile to my face. Well written and lovely illustrated I couldnt ask for more. A blast from the past brought into the present

Surprisingly, this is a well-written story, definitely far superior to anything found on the cartoon. Hordak has invaded Eternia and He-Man and She-Ra have gathered the resistance forces to fight back. Pop Mhan's art has gotten a LOT better since his work from the late 90's/ early 00's.
