Throwback Thursday #TBT: Masters of the Universe Magazine Posters

The original Masters of the Universe Magazine published 16 quarterly issues between 1985-88. More than your average comic book, each issue of MOTU contained a couple featured adventures, a letter from He-Man, a mailbox to write in letters to the editor, movie/TV reviews, several games and puzzles and much more. My favorite part of the magazine though was definitely the collector posters.

These posters could be gently removed from the magazine and then displayed for all to see. Over the course of the magazine's run, artist Earl Norem would create 23 original masterpieces highlighting specific characters or epic battle scenes. I thought I'd share my favorites for Throwback Thursday this week. Thanks to the He-Man.Org website for the images and providing scans of every page of every issue!
