Masters Of The Universe Mini Comics (Mattel)

Masters of the Universe Mini Comics
Mattel (DC Comics)

One of the fun aspects of collecting the original Masters of the Universe toys were the little mini comics that came packed with some of the figures.  Each mini book was approximately six inches high, and contained a short story, typically which intertwined with the character it came packed with - Though some were just randomly packed in with other figures in addition.  Throughout the six years that the toy line ran, forty-nine books were produced.

The first eleven comics were produced by DC Comics, and are highly praised among He-Man collectors for the high quality of the books.  Unfortunately, in what can be assumed was a cost cutting measure, Mattel took direct control of the books, and produced the remaining thirty-eight, which fans consider to be of a much lower quality both in art and story.
