Earlier last year, I was invited by Craig Kyle and Kevin Feige to make their wrap-gift for the cast and crew of Thor: The Dark World.
Here’s the thingie I did. Each principal cast member had their own character on their poster.
And they paid me with a real Mjolnir!
Another dimension invades Earth and one invader wears no pants in MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE!
The comic book adaption (which is based on an earlier script) has a scene in Castle Grayskull after Skeletor’s defeat where The Sorceress shows He-Man an American Flag and NASA ship log. You can read a good chunk of the comic here:

We talk about how the book came together and get into the nitty gritty of some of the design I put into the book. Check it out!
I have a new article up at Comics Alliance about the surprisingly great old Masters of the Universe comics. The books are light on plot, but featured some premier artists like Alfredo Alcala, Curt Swan, and Bruce Timm. I also break down my favorite comic of all time in which Superman is transported to Eternia:
“Growing up, this comic lumbered through the realm of myth and folklore like a popculture Sasquatch, balancing precariously between “too good to be true” and “too awesome to not exist”. In second grade, a friend told me his older brother’s best friend had a comic where He-Man fought Superman, but he might as well have told me Indiana Jones once battled Darth Vader or Marty McFly had joined the Ghostbusters, the prospect was just too fantastical to believe.”

This book has been on my radar for a whole year, waiting to see just what these weirdos were working on and goddamn, it is all I was hoping for and more. Don’t be foolish, go buy yourself one.
This book is everything comics should be: fun to look at, and really fun to read.
never give up on your dreams.
