    DC announced today that they plan for a third Maxi-Series from the world of MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. On Wednesday, Deceber 17th, DC and Mattel will launch HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR. All of Eternia is at stake in this new series, including Castle Grayskull. The series will feature writer Dan Abnett, artist Pop Mahn, and covers from Stjepan Šejić.

    "This is the big one! The epic! So much MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE lore and mythology sweeping together in one epic storyline! He-Man, She-Ra and their allies combine to take Eternia back from Hordak in the war to end all wars.... and there are other sinister threats lurking in the shadows,” said Dan Abnett writer of the series. “Did I say epic? I think I did. Twice. And Pop is a genius! His art is amazing. He's the sort of artist that writers long to write for! I can't properly express how excited I am about this book."

    “When you are given the chance to be a part of a monumental storyline, so thunderously epic that it could only be crafted by master storyteller, Dan Abnett - you thank the heavens for your good fortune and you dig deep because this new MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE story is guaranteed to blow some socks off,” stated Pop Mahn the artist on the series. “Dan's brilliant scripts constantly push my artistic boundaries like no other and I'll be bringing this fresher, better artistic approach to the new saga. I can't wait to get in the trenches and help Dan produce something really special!”

    “This is our Ragnarok, our Twilight of the Gods,” said Rob David, “the epic showdown He-Man fans have been waiting for. It’s He-Man vs. Skeletor, She-Ra vs. Hordak, Masters vs. Dark Masters – all fighting for control over Castle Grayskull. In the end, winner takes all. Who will become the Master of the Universe? Nothing will be the same after this.”

    HE-MAN: THE ETERNITY WAR #1 will be available at your LCS and digitally on December 17th.

    @nightfang: they ended it. Basically all the dc heroes went home with a reaction kind of like, "that was weird...". The ending was very lackluster. :/

    I like the cover but I've never read He-Man. He's a DC property?

    @sealife: Sometimes the obvious answer is the right one, lol. A maxi series is a limited series too long to be classified as a "mini series". Usually 12 issues or more.

    @perfect_10: I know right?! I love also the tie in with Skeletors family and King Grayskull. as well as them using Anwat Gar. LOVE THIS SERIES!

    @nightfang:That story is already done. Volume 4 DC Universe vs MOTU should be out sometime within the next 2 months.

    @inferiorego Spelled December wrong in the article. wanted to point that out. at the top first paragraph.

    The most awesome thing is that according to his Deviantart page, one of Stjepan Sejic's childhood dreams was to draw He Man officially!

    it just makes me worried that this might be the end of the series. I just hope that this is not the end because the series has been awesome in terms of writing, and Pop Mhans art has been awesome.

    If DC doesnt like to use the name Captain Marvel, why not just take elements from the MOTU & have Adam Batson run into a Hot sorceress who gives him a magic sword that, by the power of Shazam turns him into He-Man, the world's mightiest Mortal?

    They are similar characters power-wise, & TBH the main-stream public knows He-Man a heck of a lot more than the big red cheese.

    Where do I have to start reading for this?!?! Will this be a jumping on point?

    1) if you can find issue 13 on the racks anywhere right now. that is a good jumping on point. it starts the Origin of She-ra storyline which will last until issue 19 which is the final issue.

    2) you can wait till December when the maxi series starts. that would be another jumping on point.

    3) There are 3 books out now. Volume 1 the mini series. Vol 2 was origin stories and digital one shots, and vol 3, the first 6 issues of the ongoing. Vol 4 will more than likely be the DC crossover unless they do that as a separate book, if so than vol 4 will be issues 7-12 "What lies within" story. then vol 5 will be "Blood Of Grayskull" storyline. which is out now as issues.

    @cobramorph: probably because they are still using the captain marvel character? They just call him Shazam instead. Otherwise he's the same.
