Dark Horse is big on their art books. That's with good reason too, as all of their books always showcase various properties through a variety of phenomenal art. There's seemingly nothing stopping them from offering artistic looks at any and everything you can possibly want. Well, they've taken their sweet time, but they've finally got around to offering an artistic look at He-Man in The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe. Made in close cooperation with Mattel and He-Man historians, The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe collects over 30 years of behind-the-scenes material, lore and classic imagery.
In 1982, the world was introduced to He-Man and Masters of the Universe. What followed was a cultural sensation that changed the landscape of children’s entertainment forever. Join Mattel and Dark Horse in this comprehensive retrospective chronicling the decades-long epic journey of He-Man® from toy, to television, to film, to a true pop culture phenomenon. The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe includes rarely seen images of concept sketches, prototypes, and more from Mattel’s archives. Featuring beautifully restored art from master illustrator Earl Norem—celebrated artist of the most memorable He-Man images.
The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe arrives in comic shops on April 1, 2015 and in bookstores April 14, 2015. Preorder your copy today. Full press release below.
