New He-Man Comic From DC

It looks like DC are going to be breathing new life into the He-Man franchise by releasing a 6 issue mini-series. Written by James Robinson, pencils by Philip Tan and inks by Ruy Jose.

When I was a kid He-Man was my one dimensional hero of choice until I discovered Transformers, I devoured the books and TV show. It looks like they are going to be add a little bit more depth to the series though, the plot synopsis actually looks interesting:

In the new series, Robinson reintroduces the Masters of the Universe® to comic readers with Skeletor having won a major victory and rewriting the world of Eternia where he now rules from Castle Grayskull and the Masters have no memory of their former glory. Adam is a simple woodsman haunted by dreams of a heroic warrior, wielding a powerful sword in battle. He is found by a mysterious sorceress who tells him his dreams are of the way the world should be, that he is Eternia’s champion He-Man. Adam sets off on a quest to regain his power and reawaken the Masters of the Universe.

Here’s hoping… I might actually make a trip to my local comic shop and pick this one up.
