DC Comics likes when people throw their money at them. To encourage this behavior, the publisher is releasing a crossover this fall, October to be exact. The six issue mini series will be a crossover of He-Man and The Thundercats.
“For everyone out there who took different action figures and teamed them up to take on the world, this one’s for you,” David said in a statement.
Lloyd Goldfine added, “Writing this crossover event is the thrill of a lifetime, and Rob and I can’t wait to get started...You don’t wait 30 years and not go big!”
“The Power of Grayskull and the Great Eye of Thundera have aligned to make me the luckiest guy on all the earths!” said Williams. “He-Man and ThunderCats were my life when I was in grade school—family and friends knew I loved both cartoons so much. 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!”
DC Comics recently saw much success with their Batman / Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles miniseries crossover. They’ve also published work for Mattel in the past. They are now steadily putting out more works from the Hannah-Barbera stable of characters and properties.
It seems that with the Rebirth of DC Comics and their intent on reconnected with their past. With all the nostalgia that will come of that, they’ve found a winning formula yet again.
