Children of the 80s Rejoice! He-Man Meets the Thundercats!

GameStop, Inc.

The crossover of crossovers is coming to DC Comics as they have signed a deal with Mattel to bring you the fantasy story you’ve wanted since you were 6 years old. The two heroic teams will meet up this October in comic book form!

Now we will find out, who welds the greater power, Grayskull or the Sword of Omens. Are they truly the Masters of the Universe or will they be outshined by the feline humanoid hybrid?

All these questions will be answered this fall. As for now, here is the official press release from DC Comics and Mattel on this joint venture:

It’s the epic crossover event 30 years in the making! He-Man and the Masters of the Universe team up with the ThunderCats to make comic book and pop culture history! Scheduled to debut in October and published by DC Entertainment, this monthly miniseries will embroil heroes and villains—Masters, Mutants and ThunderCats—in a mind-blowing six-part comic book saga!

The story will be brought to life by the writing team of Mattel Head Writer and Masters of the Universe Lead Creative Rob David and Supervising Producer Lloyd Goldfine, with all-star artist Freddie E. Williams II (Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) handling interiors and cover art.

“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,” said DC Editor-in-Chief Bob Harras.

“For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you,” said co-writer Rob David, who recently wrote the storyline for the critically acclaimed He-Man: the Eternity War, published by DC Entertainment in 2015.

“Writing this crossover event is the thrill of a lifetime, and Rob and I can’t wait to get started,” added co-writer Lloyd Goldfine. “You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!”

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.

“The Power of Grayskull and the Great Eye of Thundera have aligned to make me the luckiest guy on all the earths!” explained artist Freddie E. Williams II. “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!”

HE-MAN/THUNDERCATS #1 debuts October 5, 2016.
