He-Man, ThunderCats Team for After-Prime, After-School Special in New DC Comic

Oh, the power of comics. Thirty years ago, this was unimaginable – the goofy cartoon with the best cheese-to-fun ratio, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and the cartoon with the slickest animation and coolest characters, The ThunderCats, were the top of the top in terms of after-school entertainment. Two fun shows with the two most-iconic swords; two shows with decidedly different vibes; shows that could coexist in a TV-watching lineup but never in the same story or space, save for the imagination or perhaps the toy box.

The long and short: DC has made one major change that guarantees we’ll be shelling out more dollars, as will others of our ilk, nerds of a certain age, who perhaps love the 15 years that followed the original Crisis on Infinite Earths best of all. And there’s another major change incorporating a DC property that was not part of the DC Universe proper into that universe — this is the change we’re significantly less excited about.

Get Excited About the Future: Early Future Quest #1 Review

Future Quest #1 is the opening salvo in DC Comics’ revamp of several classic Hanna-Barbera properties. We’re due to see strange new versions of the Flintstones (evidently moved from Bedrock to Uncanny Valley), Scooby-Doo, and a Mad Max-like take on Wacky Races. The Future Quest title seemed both the safest bet, putting action heroes in an action comic, and the most ambitious, since there are potentially dozens of heroes and villains to incorporate from the various franchises involved, which include Jonny Quest, Space Ghost, The Herculoids, Frankenstein Jr., The Galaxy Trio, The Impossibles, Birdman, and Mighty Mightor.
