The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Limited Edition Has the Power


He-Man has quite possibly the best resume out there. The first (and only) job he's got listed on it is "Master of the Universe," which gives him power. And boy, does he have a lot of power. So much power in fact, that the adventures of he and his cohorts have merited the attention of fans both young and old. Those same fans now get a chance to lavish even more attention on him, as the Dark Horse and Mattel art book The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe will receive a limited edition release in 2015.

Restricted to 4,000 copies, The Art of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Limited Edition comes packaged in a deluxe Castle Grayskull slipcase, with an exclusive foil embossed cover and portfolio print, coming in at just under 400 pages with commentary written by Tim & Steve Seeley. 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, interviews with Dolph Lundgren, Paul Dini, Erika Scheimer and many more.

In 1982, the world was introduced to He-Man and Masters of the Universe. 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 Limited Edition is on sale in comic shops April 15th and April 28th in bookstores. Pre-order your copy today from these retailers:
