Illustrated by Freddie Williams II and written by Rob David, who happens to be Mattel’s Head Writer for Masters of the Universe and Lead Creative, as well as Supervising Producer Lloyd Goldfine – the comic will be a six-issue miniseries that finds Mumm-Ra the Ever-Living doing his best to obtain a weapon that can match the might and magic of Lion-O’s Sword of Omens. Imagine his delight when he discovers the existence of the Power Sword on Eternia!

He-Man and the Masters of the Universe team up with the ThunderCats-the epic crossover event you’ve waited thirty years to see! In his ever-living desire to destroy the mighty ThunderCats, Mumm-Ra quests for a weapon that can rival the legendary Sword of Omens: He-Man’s Sword of Power! But his dimension-spanning scheme kick starts a cataclysmic crisis that will embroil heroes and villains-Masters, Mutants and ThunderCats-in a mind-blowing six-part saga!”

A big thanks to Comic Book Resources who broke the story and to fellow Retroist writer Daniel XIII for giving me the heads up on it!
