He-Man Thundercats #5

Writers: Rob David and Lloyd Goldfine

The Fall of Grayskull:

The warriors of Eternia and Third Earth team up against the onslaught of Ancient Evil beings released by Mumm-Ra and Skeletor. When all hope seems lost Jaga brings them an ancient scroll of knowledge that gives the warriors the knowledge to destroy the bodies of the ancient beings. Unfortunately, Mumm-Ra and Skeletor planned for the warriors to gain the upper hand and turned into a He-Man esque Mumm-ator. Next Issue: Across the Multiverse.

The Confessional:

This is the Penultimate edition of this comic, and unfortunately our two main characters are nowhere in sight. He-Man Thundercats without either Lion-O or He-Man? What a let down. I mean this is their book, at least one of them should have shown up, well both seeing as they were together in the last issue. Now the action sequences were fantastic but everything in this issue seemed a little bit forced… making the enemies basically unbeatable until a well timed illusion makes the fighting stop and Jaga brings forth an ancient scroll of knowledge that reveals the enemy’s weakness. Yeah… this whole issue just seems to force things forward and nothing seemed natural. All of that only for Skeletor and Mumm-ra to call on the Ancient forces of evil to power them up to something like He-Man… which of course will lead us to the final fight with He-Man, Lion-O and Mumm-ator. Now I said the action sequences were fantastic, that also goes for the rest of the art in this book. I loved this art… it made me feel like I was looking at a more sophisticated version of the cartoons I watched as a kid… I HAVE THE POWER!!!!
