Fans of the Thundercats and He-Man have been wishing for an ongoing comic book series for both franchises for a long time. Now DC Comics is bringing us a crossover that puts the Thundercats into He-Man’s Universe! This six issue event is slated to begin on October 5th. Check out all the details below, and let us know what you think about this coming event AFTER THE JUMP!
DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras had this to say:
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.
Series co-writer Rob David stated:
For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you.
Co-writer Lloyd Goldfine added:
Writing this crossover event is the thrill of a lifetime, and Rob and I can’t wait to get started, You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!
Series artist Freddie E. Williams II fresh off his stint as artist for the Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles crossover said:
The Power of Grayskull and the Great Eye of Thundera have aligned to make me the luckiest guy on all the earths! He-Man and ThunderCats were my life when I was in grade school—family and friends knew I loved both cartoons so much. I used to pause episodes and draw from them, since they were so awesome. The He-Man/ThunderCats crossover is the fulfillment of a lifelong goal and my fanboy dream come true! I’m having a blast!
