Masters of the Universe Minicomics Finally Getting Reprinted. The minicomics that came with the original He-Man and the Masters of the Universe toys are finally being made available again. When Mattel launched their widely successful Masters of the Universe toy line in 1982 it was, initially, just a toy line. The animated series didn't come around for another year, and that became the predominant "official" vision of He-Man and the world of Eternia.
But that wasn't always the case. The toys were originally packaged with minicomics, each one telling a tale relevant to the action figure they came with. These were, at least at first, pretty different from the stories told on the animated series, often with a more medieval/barbarian tone.
There were about 50 made, and the first 11 are considered to be the ones that were the biggest departure from the He-Man legend that has become entrenched in popular culture. There's a great index of them here. You can find these every now and then, in your basement, maybe at a garage sale. But they've never been given a proper collection. That's about to change thanks to Dark Horse Comics. The sharp-eyed folks at the excellent He-Man. org website spotted a listing on Edelweiss for the He-Man and the Masters of The Universe Minicomic Collection.

If that's correct, well, that will be the bargain of the season. I wonder if there's any chance they can convince DC Comics to allow them to reprint the He-Man and Superman team-up from DC Comics Presents #47, or if DC (who currently publish the He-Man license) have plans of their own for that book and the mini-series that followed. Thank you, Dark Horse. Thank you so very much.
