Happy Masters Of The Universe Day! // by Comicsforever and Joe Amato (2014)
Hi there! this is my 4000th post and I wanted it to be special because… well it’s kind of a big deal to me. I started Comics Forever in 2009 and since then it’s been a labor of love, one I keep in a very traditional and classic way even when I come up with new ideas like the Artist Highlights, the Milestone Moments or the Cover Galleries, this little corner of the ‘net is a reflection of the things I love in pop culture past and present, specially about those properties that are very dear to me. Masters Of The Universe has been with me for almost 30 years so imagine my surprise when I found out that in 1987 a politician named Tom Bradley by that time Mayor of California declared this day MOTU day!
Up to present day He-Man and his pals have had three TV shows, one movie, various runs of great Comic Books and the most important thing of all, the signature of the brand: a LOT of toys! Each en every single one as great as the other. Masters Of The Universe was a very big deal when I was a kid because you didn’t really had a canon continuity to follow the story of the characters, so you had to make up your own, this situation evolved as the animated series where produced and finally with the MOTU classics line a full canon has been provided for every character in this rich universe.
Today I celebrate my 4000th post with this great piece of pop culture. Some of the best characters I have come to know and love and who unlike most shows today, taught me and my generation right from wrong (along the parents of course!)
