DC Digital Comic: Masters of the Universe One-Shots

There was a lot of excitement for DC Comics around April when they announced a all-new HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE print comic book – As a companion to that, DC will be issuing a digital-first comic book MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. The new comic features a series of character one-shots by various creators, with the first chapter debuting on June 23.

Written by none other than Geoff Johns with artwork by Howard Porter and John Livesay, the lead-off chapter is a prelude from Eternia’s history that is tied directly to the upcoming print comic HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. In his story, Johns introduces an entirely new character that he first imagined when he was just eight years old – Sir Laser Lot. Mattel even created a new action figure based on the character that will debut at San Diego Comic-Con.

“I’ve been a huge fan of HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE since I was a kid, so it’s cool to write a story for this new series — not to mention teaming up with Howard Porter and John Livesay, my old FLASH partners in crime,” stated Geoff Johns. “And to create an all-new character that will become an action figure – Sir Laser Lot — it’s beyond fun. I’m going to buy like 100 of them.”

The digital series will debut new chapters twice a month on Saturdays. The second chapter (7/14) is written by Mike Costa with artwork by Jheremy Raapack and it tells the story of He-Man’s most trusted companion, Battle Cat. The third digital chapter (7/28), written by Kyle Higgins with artwork by Pop Mhan, is an adventure with the captain of the Eternia guard, Man-At-Arms.

The one-shot comics are only 99 cents and is a really cool way to open up a discovery of Masters of the Universe from new perspectives and characters. They are available through DC Comics and Comixology apps. I can’t wait for the next story to come out and Sir Laser Lot already has a place on my shelf when the figure is released!
