DC’s New He-Man Digital Comic Features Character Created By An 8 Year Old Geoff Johns
In April DC announced a new He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe comic they would be doing, much to fans excitement. Before that comes out though, DC is kicking off a digital-first comic book Masters Of The Universe series of character one-shots by different artists and writers. The first chapter debuted Saturday.
The first one is written by DC superstar Geoff Johns with artwork by Howard Porter and John Livesay. The first chapter of the one-shot series is a prelude from Eternia’s history that ties into the upcoming He-Man comic. In Johns’ story he introduces a new character that he first imagined when he was eight years old. The new character, Sir Laser Lot, is going to be made into a Mattel toy that will come out at Comic-Con. Johns talks about the character and toy:
I’ve been a huge fan of HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE since I was a kid, so it’s cool to write a story for this new series — not to mention teaming up with Howard Porter and John Livesay, my old FLASH partners in crime. And to create an all-new character that will become an action figure – Sir Laser Lot — it’s beyond fun. I’m going to buy like 100 of them
The digital series will put out a new chapter twice a month on Saturdays. The second one, out on 7/14, is by Mike Costa with art by Jheremy Raapack and is about Battle Cat. The third chapter, out 7/28, is by Kyle Higgins with art by Pop Mhan and is about Man-At-Arms. You can see the art for Sir Laser Lot below. Johns also took to Twitter earlier this month with pictures of the Comic-Con action figure.
