What must be 30 years in the making sees two epically diverse world of 80’s pop culture collide in the splashes of a coming six-part comic book series. He-Man and Lion-o are sure to sinews and cross swords (phrasing) in a coming He-Man & Thundercats DC Comics series.
The story will be scribed by the writing team of Mattel Head Writer and Masters of the Universe Lead Creative Rob David and Supervising Producer Lloyd Goldfine, with artist Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) handling interiors and cover art.
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.
