MOTU is pretty darn hot right now with a subscription-only toy line, a popular comic book from DC Comics, a possible movie in the works, and now a full-on art tome from Dark Horse.
And if you know Dark Horse’s series of art books, then you already know that this is something He-Man fans should be getting excited about. Plainly put, the company knows what they’re doing with these kinds of things and puts out a stellar product on a pretty regular basis.
If you’re a Masters of the Universe fan, or even just a classic toy fan, it doesn’t get any better than this. Collected here in The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, you’ll find artwork from famed illustrator and original He-Man artist Earl Norem, as well as early concept sketches and designs for prototypes, and “more”.
And this stuff is classic with a capital ‘C’ too. The toys debuted way back in 1982 and are still being made today as a part of Mattycollector.com’s online subscription plan, and this book covers it all with chapters ranging from 1981 and He-Man’s creation all the way up to 2014 and his further evolutions in comics and action figures.
Have a look at the preview pages below and you’ll get a sneak peek at what’s to come when The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe arrives in comic book shops on April 1st, 2015 and then in bookstores on April 14th, 2015.
