The worlds of He-Man and ThunderCats collide in new comic series

"Teaming them up for one enormous story will prove to be a publishing event that fans simply cannot miss," said DC editor-in-chief Bob Harras.

Mattel has teamed with DC Comics to launch a He-Man/ThunderCats comic series.

Set to debut in October, the monthly miniseries will see the two worlds collide in a six-part comic book saga.

“The Masters of the Universe and the ThunderCats are both global phenomena, beloved by millions," said DC editor-in-chief Bob Harras.

"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.”

The comic sees the evil Mumm-Ra search for He-Man’s Sword of Power in a bid to destroy the ThunderCats. But his scheme soon unites 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," added artist Freddie E. Williams II.

“He-Man and ThunderCats were my life when I was in grade school. 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 5th, 2016.
