Quick review for a quick read. This was a fascinating look into the evolution of a series/franchise that I remember growing up with to some extent. I honestly had no idea just how many incarnations that the Masters of the Universe series had spawned, and this compilation is a nice delving into the series’ history. This book is an eye-opening look at sketches, toys, comics, the animated series, the movie, the games, and other mediums of art in which He-Man, She-Ra and the collective cast from both franchises are chronicled. The interviews, character sketches, promotional materials (I’m pretty sure I still own one or two of the coloring books that this compilation had) are all great insights into the history and evolution of the series even to more recent incarnations. I liked it quite a bit, and definitely appreciated the read.

Overall score: 4.5/5 stars.
